    Some time ago a representative from Idrci told here that v.3.0 of their packet filter was coming along nicely and could be out in a few weeks.

    Well, it's not out, but I'm still interested.

    Does anybody know what the plans are?

    Has CHX-I packet filter 3.0 as a separate product been axed?

    Or is it coming later on (when)?

    Any news on new features?

    Thanks!

    Hi halcyon! As far as I know, CHX-I 3-0 is still in the beta stage. If you would like to try it out, I am sure Stefan would be more than happy to help you out on that: support@idrci.net

    I haven't heard from Stefan in a while, so I can't tell you when it is due for release. Has some new features, such as ARP and MAC control, plus other enhancements...

    Regards,
    Jazzie

    I believe it is still in beta now, as Jazzie mentions. I also heard that there may be a possible addition of something like an IPS, which would certainly be very interesting.. The beta 3 is very nice and so far bug free.. Perhaps Stefan will comment if he sees this thread...

    You are correct (except for the bug free part.... ;) ). CHX is still in beta until we reach a 2.x quality with the new drivers.
    Until then - those who are interested in having a run at the beta can send an email to support.

    Best Regards,

    Stefan.

    Will be waiting for it, currently using CHX 2 and am quite happy with it.
