    Hi,

    Is this a good/bad firewall? I use it but I haven' got the knowledge to evaluate it... :oops:

    It's simple. Not very good outbound / leaktest performance, but it does stealth your connection.
    For me, it runs stable. :)

    I have found AH one of the easiest firewalls around, and like SSK stated (hya SSK :D) it stealths the connection, is stable and predefined rules can be used.
    I presume this new version 1.8 should perform better against leaktests then the 1.7 version .. If leaktests are your major concern, probably I would choose for another one like Outpost, Tiny or Jetico.
    keep us updated :)

    No, improvements in leaktest performance will be in KIS 6 AH component.

    aha, so the AH firewall (on his own) is not exactly the same as the one in KIS .. that I didn't know yet .. thought it was the same .. thanx SSK.

    /edit: I thought the 'nice' performance against leaktests are addressed through other kis2006 modules rather then AH module ..

    KAH 1.8.180 (and 1.9 now in beta) are the "same" as 1.7 etc.

    There has been talk about a stand-alone version of the new AH component in KIS 6, but nothing solid.

    KIS 6 has a much improved AH component, but Application Integrity Control / registry protection are indeed different modules. Outpost for example has the AIC built in, Kaspersky has put the module in the "KAV" part of KIS.

    Hope I'm still making sense here... :blink: o_O

    lol .. you do, I hope the standalone version will perform a lot better in the future. the mem/cpu usage is excellent too btw

    cheers

    Yes, a standalone version could be nice. But IMO KIS 6 is better then a standalone AH :)

    Is Tiny Personal Firewall low on mem usage ?

    Kaspersky Internet Security 6 will be released around the 15th of may, with much improved features. :)

    If you have a license for Kaspersky Personal Security Suite, you can upgrade for free.

    it is certainly not the heaviest resources (15-20mb) but it was the fastest browsing experience ever! that + global protection scope impressed me a lot.

    Tiny is one of the finest firewalls around, still..

    but to go back on topic with AH :) ...

    Excellent !

    Rereading my earlier post, I'm not completely happy with what I posted. :(

    What I meant by "... with much improved features." is compared to the current Kaspersky programs (Kaspersky AV / Kaspersky AH / Kaspersky Anti Spam). :ninja:
