Is this related to the entry in Changelog that says

"Port and service based filtering to improve performance.  Stream5 will
 ignore traffic (if it is configured to do so) for which there are no
 rules or preprocessors configured to look at this traffic."


This is possible only when there are no ANY src port to ANY dst port rules.
Is that correct? or am i missing something?


Thanks
