    Hi @ Wilders

    When I tried Evorim I found that in the Apps columns, All, Inactive etc. It was easy to delete accidentally an App. There is a trash can to one side. The problem the that I found was there appears to be no mechanism for replacing the App so that it can be controlled.

    I accidentally deleted Google Chrome, repeated re starts did not get Chrome back in the list. I could use Chrome but it was out of the control of Free Firewall. I wrote to the developer for advice so far no joy.

    Interesting, hopefully more people will test the newest version. It seemed to have potential but from what I've read the quality wasn't that high in the first versions.

    But did it correctly block outgoing connections, did you test it?

    Is it possible to create rules for specific protocol, direction, port(s) and IP addresses? How is the logging in this firewall? Is it clear and detailed?

    No, you can just either allow or block.

    Not sure about this, sorry

    Okay thank you! The simple allow/block only is a deal breaker for me.

    Is it just me or has the GUI also been redesigned, looks pretty cool. I would like to know if it now works correctly.

    Thanks indeed. They have added customizing rules? Finally, going to test it out ASAP.

    EDIT: Well then, it seems, that it will take another 2-3 versions before it gets usable. Rules lack any IP address/TCP/UDP and such. Not to mention, that rules do not take effect immediately after Save, but upon closing/re-launching exe, that is pretty dumb. If you have a running malware and you will decide to block it, it will not get blocked until restart.
