    That does not work for me.

    It hangs.

    Anything else is running great!

    Very good Firewall! :thumb:

    Could anyone clarify me whether or not the web filter (I don't recall the exact name.) already allows multiple IP block lists and automatically updates them?

    That was a suggestion I expressed the last year to Agnitum, and they said they were going to take a look at it.

    I can verify it for my self, for this computer I'm on isn't mine, and there's no other way to verify it. I also cannot find any information regarding this at Agnitum blog.


    Thank you

    Not sure what you mean by 'multiple IP block list' in the web filter. Are you talking about automatic updates of ads-list? It would be a usefull feature.
    Anyways I posted here to warn that uninstalling Outpost Firewalla as well as OSS may leave your windows firewall to stay inactive. I've contacted the support about the issue on previous beta and got a reply to manually set the windows firewall service to 'automated'. The last beta 3356 still has the same bug - Outpost disables windows firewall and can not reset it after uninstalling for some reason on certain PCs.

    Hello,

    No, I'm not talking about ads list. It would be nice to have it like that, though.

    I don't recall the exact name of the module, but there's a part in Outpost Firewall (It used to be a plug-in in older version named Blockpost.) that allows users to manually block IPs, including importing lists. But, it will only allow you to import 1 list. If you import another, this new one will take place. So, so far, I've been creating 1 list with the lists I have. (Not anymore since I don't have a PC of my own right now.)

    I contacted with Agnitum last year, and told them it would be great to see Outpost allow multiple lists, and even automatically update them, either locally or using the Internet.

    I don't know if this has been done or not.

    I remember that plug-in, used it myself. Have just checked it out and can not find anything alike. It has a standard IP block-list menu - Add,Delete.... Import,Export. That's all I can see. Sorry.

    Yes and no.

    Yes, because that's a great list. ;)

    No, I'm talking about the module in Outpost that allows users to import IP blocklists.

    Until the last time I used Outpost (last year), Outpost wouldn't allow users to import more than 1 list. For that, you would have to manually merge all lists in 1 single file and then import it into Outpost.

    Last year I've been in contact with Agnitum support suggesting them - among other things - to allow users to import more than 1 list and also allow to automatically update such lists, either by updating locally (a new updated list in your system) or by connecting to the sites where the lists one could be using are hosted and check if a new updated file was available, and update the lists.

    I'm guessing they haven't done this.

    By the way, have they implemented buffer overflow protection? (Also one of my suggestions.) I couldn't read any information regarding that at their blog either.


    Thank you

    Please add and option to remove the applications (in applications rules) that are not pressent anymore in the computer.
    This can be adding a button called Purge like Comodo have.

    Is there anything to make you think so? To my understanding starting Outpost in the background just deactivates GUI, the services responsible for defense are still the same and work as they would with GUI enabled. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yes,i subscribe to your wish lordraiden.:thumb:
    But i don't think they'll do it...if they didn't do it until now...no hopes for the future.But it would be a necessary feature.OA has it too,not like Purge in Comodo,but you have to tick the option "only deleted",and it can be done manually.

    Hello:

    I'm running the Outpost Pro V7 Public RC on my notebook Windows 7 64 bit machine.

    FWIW, I note that the export of settings is working again with the PC.

    As well, I have 20,000 ip's and sites in their IP block list.

    The new features I'm on the usual learning curve on those.

    Have work to do on the rules as I left learning mode and rules wizard on for a few days. This produces some rules that need tightening as usual.

    ID block/replace with *** is also there but I haven't reloaded that section yet.

    On install it recognises Nod32 (possibly others) so it minimizes possible conflicts.

    See ya:D

    I can confirm that your information is incorrect . Starting in background mode is fine . Same protection starting at the same time as if NOT in background mode .

    Cheers:)

    Just a guess but since competitors have free versions I would bet the answer is yes.


    FWIW, saving $ on firewalls is like saving money on brakes for your car, save $ elsewhere. IMHO.;)
