    Hello to all,

    I was wondering how to disable Jetico's packet filter. I read it somewhere, but I can't find it after searching through the forum for over half an hour :( . I love CHX-I's packet filtering, and I just want to use jetico for outbound and HIPS. Thanks for the help.

    You can turn off the packet filtering just removing or renaming the driver bc_filter.sys from Windows system directory (for example, WINDOWS/System32/Drivers).
    But I think that there are much better choices for outbound only if you use CHX for packet filtering. Such as Look 'n' Stop, Zone Alarm free or even Kerio Personal firewall.

    Regards

    Thanks jotter:D
    As a response to your other suggestions, Look'n'Stop isn't free, Kerio 4.2.3 is a little too bloated for me, and ZoneAlarm is a little too bloated.

    Thanks again

    Seems to be working perfectly after 7 hours :cool: . This firewall is so sweet! I love the layout, and the degree of control it offers for a free firewall. The low resource usage is also a plus. Heartily recommend it to others. Great job Jetico :thumb:

    A while back, someone here was saying that they are working on a version 2 now, so that might be something to look forward to.. :)

    Hello,
    Do you mean Stateful Packet Inspection? Is that what you mean?
    If so, I posted in anothet thread, I'll link you to it if that's what you need.

    I think application control in Jetico PF is just confusing.
    As a whole system it's a very nice free personal firewall.

    In response to Mrkvonic:

    I don't want Jetico to filter inbound packets. So if you have a better solution, please link :D

    Thanks a lot,
