    The point is exactly that i'm expecting to read something from the dev.

    the same is also true for you!

    Shut down a thread because YOUR expecting to read something?
    A lot of useful info here.
    What a waste of a mind.

    Now I see your angle trying to start something so they will close the thread. Very sneeky.

    Oh, okay! So if the thread was renamed, or a new one started that didn't include the words beta or testing, you would be fine with that?

    Maybe I finally see your point, but after almost six years and over 50 pages of posts, I think most people are smart enough to figure it out, and are still reading and posting on this thread because they still have an interest in it.

    But I wonder; if the words "Beta" and "Testing" were removed from the title, would that really make you happy, or would you complain that without those words people may think it's continually developed and 100% reliable, and the thread should be closed because of that?

    By the way; I don't keep up with Avira, but should the thread titled "Avira VPN 0.9.10.31406 Beta" started by CHEFKOCH be closed, or is Avira VPN 0.9.10.31406 still in beta after well over a year as people running across the thread might be fooled into thinking otherwise? https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/avira-vpn-0-9-10-31406-beta.384467/ Not that people are showing any interest anyway.

    :thumb: Didn't think of that.

    Maybe he could offer Wilders a bribe to close the thread if it bothers him that much.

    But as I've posted before on other threads, I always get a kick out of people who read and post on threads to criticize people for reading and posting on threads. :D


    (BTW: the developer last appeared in April and announced he was working on a new version after having been absent from the forum for almost a year (May 2016) if I'm not missing something. So I'm still hopeful maybe the developer had a clue what he was talking about despite CHEFKOCH declaring the project dead. Maybe I don't know what I'm doing, but as long as TinyWall still seems to be working for me as expected, I plan on continuing to use it. If it quits working for me, or if some issue I'm unaware of becomes apparent, then maybe I'll try Windows Firewall Notifier again if it appears mature enough. Though, to be honest, I'm not sure that any Windows Firewall controller has ever saved me from anything or is likely to. Though I do like using it at least to make sure things I'm not aware of aren't calling home.)

    First! Calm down!

    Its weird that you are so astonished! Are u kiddin' me?!
    Its normal that I'm expecting to read something from the dev. for a tool that have to be updated and with a lot of issues!
    If this not happen from a lot of time what is the reason for a thread to remain open?
    I was trying to make my point clear! It seems simple to me and i don't understand why is so complicated to you!


    That's my point of view... and i show some arguments, but i don't see yours!!
    An advise!
    If u make some valuable points and don't freak out with frustrating comments the thread will not be closed!

    Or if you don't like something just don't readddd!

    I did and I couldn't find any bug reported.
    Only this, to which I replied, but I didn't get any answer.
    If you and CHEFKOCH are just trolling, I think administrators can take care of you both

    trolling what!! Are you normal? what's your problem?
    If you don't have any issue with tw, lucky you!
    Take your time and read all posts, there are people not lucky as you... and search other threads too!

    i suggest to read and think before talking!
    i don't think administrators or any one needs your suggestion! So... step back and... think, after this quiete...

    1. errors with windows mail
    2. Have to restart the service after reboot...

    Sure if i reinstall it i will find many other issues due to some conflicts with w10

    P.s. Its not a question of being smarter, but have some value arguments!
    Not only tell the other what to do, or do not do!

    Probably windows mail uses several processes, so you should allow all of them on tinywall. I don't use windows mail, so I can't help

    Never happened to me, maybe something was corrupted. It could be worth trying to re-install it

    You can whitelist by exe, process or window. Noting should be broken if it is whitelisted.

    As TinyWall is not just a GUI for Windows firewall, but attempts to protect it's own rules against the change in WF, it is of course possible that some compatibility issues with other (security) software can arise.

    In my setup, which is TinyWall and AppGuard and MS antivirus and some VPN software, TinyWall has proven rock solid in W10.

    I can't understand how some people come here and tell what to this thread should be done or expecting software be made open source or that they complain if the developer has refused serve them personally. Best just use TW if liking it and if not stop bothering with negative comments, unless they are about some technical details that are not working. And try find a solution and if not finding reporting it. About Windows mail, I don't use it or any such apps.

    When I try to enter the TinyWall website with Chrome I get an error saying the connection isn't private.

    NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID

    Is TinyWall abandonware? What's happened?

    The certificate has expired, that's why you get the warning. You can visit the http website (instead of the https): http://tinywall.pados.hu/

    Never refuse to serve me personally, but when he posts there will be a big update:

    "I'm slowly hacking away at the new major version...

    Meanwhile, TinyWall's website has been migrated to a more powerful server, but it has been brought to my attention that at the same time I broke automatic updates. This has been corrected and updates are working again. Though there is no new program version ATM, but the same functionality was used to keep the hosts file up-to-date, so this is still important that it is now repaired.

    And nothing heard.

    It is a pretty good product. Be nice to hear from him at least once a month to let us know the progress.

    Your are hell bent on shutting down this thread, that's weird.

    Uh... I think I'll wait for the certificate to be renewed. If the site owner can't even be bothered updating a certificate then I'm better off using something else. Thanks anyway though.

    The certificate is valid until August 2018, but Chrome distrusts StartCom-certificates.
    Browser Palemoon and Firefox are working fine with https:

    I though the Dev said he was putting it on hold because of school. Also has anyone tried to e-mail him to see what is going on.

    I don't understand the beef against this firewall and this person wanting to close down this thread. This is a wonderful firewall that I have been using for a while now. Right now I'm running windows 8.1 and have no issues. The firewall serves people that believe in extreme security. You have to know what to let out and what to let in. If I had an issue with it I refer to this thread and the wonderful users that share their experience with the rest of the community. This thread serves a purpose for those that use Tinywall and are not ready to give it up for something else. It is minimalist, the way some folks and I like it. Not everything is for everyone. Saying that people would be confused...well life is confusing and I don't expect for us to terminate life because some folks get confused about it. confusion bring mind expansion and knowledge. I don't look down on those that get confused cause there is always room to expand. Now if you are confused reading my post..ahh..I will cheer for you to expand. : ) (just my wooden nickle, raised from my two cents) Oh man...I feeling so old....
