    Hello. First off, I am very sorry to see such low interest in this excellent firewall here on Wilders (and in general I suppose).
    I have a question - perhaps a topic needs a new thread, but this place should be appropriate as well - (if not, mods feel free....)

    I have installed this version of Jetico, 2.0.1.2 the other day, and noticed something that wasn't happening before. When I exit P2P app (which listens on a needed port), I normally get blocked it's port in my logs - the green entries in the log screenshot (sorry I coudn't make it any smaller). All well there.

    As of this build (2.0.1.2) I also started to get TCP in prompts for my other listening processes on P2P forwarded port! WTF? - I created a "block" rule with logging for the purpose of this post, red entries (in this case it is the FD-ISR service listening locally).

    Can someone please explain why is this happening now with this build, and not with any of the previous? This is now really over my head. TIA and cheers,

    I recently purchased Jetico 2.0.1.2 and had a bad experience with it. Don't get me wrong, I love the firewall engine and its simple rule based configuration. What I didn't love about the tool is the uninstall process. Apparently I'm not the only Jetico user that has experienced this.

    I had to uninstall Jetico because Netgear's StorageCentral 101 software/driver (Z-SANservice.exe) is not compatible with Jetico (as well as Comodo). I tried everything possible (that I could find on the internet) to make Jetico work with Netgear's SC101 SAN device, so I had no choice but to uninstall Jetico.

    Uninstalling Jetico is simple, it's just that it hangs on the last part, "Removing Registry Settings". I had no choice but to cancel the uninstall since it was hung for more than an hour. Well, I rebooted my machine and the next thing I noticed was that my network connection was not working, it showed "local access only" status. I tried everything to get my network working again, I consider myself a pro when it comes to diagnosing and fixing windows problems. Long story short, I had to re-install Vista....

    So this a warning for all of you thinking of evaluating Jetico in Vista.

    Can 2.0.1.2 be installed over 2.0.0.37, if you shut down the firewall first?

    It is always better to make a fresh new install. Save your config.xml file first.

    I have seen similar (this is a bug, IMHO), this is reported. I will follow to see if resolved in next build.

    There is now a dedicated forum for jetico, very much alive, kicking and supported:

    It certainly does not look like a normal comm. However, I'll keep the build, although I don't like to have 'block' rules. And will keep a keen eye on it while waiting for the next one.

    I occasionaly lurked Smokey's, but haven't been there in months, due to low activity there. I took a look, it is better now... Nail is posting...

    I had heard Jetico is hard to use though it does perform excellently in leak tests.

    It's not that it's difficult, it just requires more work to get it configured the way you want it.
