That being said, this firewall will give you all the power to need to make sure that only the processes that you want are connecting to the internet.
I've been using this firewall for over 2 years now, and it's a great tool for people who have some basic understanding of how network connections work. This is one of the reasons I don't upgrade to a new OS until it's jailbreakable. Unfortunately there are some negative aspects, from mere annoyance of the popups, to other people using your idevice, to performance problems in some scenarios. It's a great tweak, but it's certainly not an "install it and forget it" tool like desktop anti-virus. If you're just looking to prevent push email, you're better off just disabling that in the settings.
Also, the 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 connections (as shown in the screenshot) are a bug introduced with iOS 5. They're not actual network connections.Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. -- M.C. Escher
