    Why? 'Stealth' is nothing but marketing hype. It does not bring any additional security (or value). o_O

    So why is this driver not officially published by Kaspersky? And where did you get this file from. If you want to share this file please provide a reliable download source for it, e.g. the path of the Kaspersky ftp-server.

    Well ... I have some kind of connection with KAH driver developer. I know almost everything about it.
    As to me, I'm using new driver already... And I dont have any problems discussed in this forum any more. :cool:

    Heh... Anyway as far as I understood, you're not interested. Then wait for 1.5 version. I guess it'll be released in couple of weeks.

    And that is and (alwayso_O) will be the Kasperky problem:

    very good programs, but they are all memory hogs...

    You're not right here ...
    At my PC KAH uses 3980K of memory ...

    (ICQ - 13432K ...)
    So I dont think KAH eats too much memory ...

    So Gen, considering Kaspersky have no word about this 'new driver' from several sources, how did you manage to come by it?
    You say you have connections with programmers?
    If you would be so kind as to mail me this 'driver' I'd be keen to have a look at it

    or tell me your email ...

    It seems to me that couple of weeks was too optimistic ...
    Officials says KAH 1.5 is to be released in June ... But I can inform you, that KAH 1.5 is in BUG-fix stage now ...
    sorry for misinformation :rolleyes:

    I tried KAV's Beta firewall along time ago, when they had it posted on their site. Then they closed the Beta and released the firewall.
    Are you saying there is still a beta out there or that they shouldn't have released their beta so soon?

    As appearances go they stopped the Beta and started selling the 1.0 version which had lots of small problems. I remember Igor from KL saying at the kav ice forum sometime ago that there will be a release again of another beta version of KAH sometime before the next version and this maybe be around the time of the KAV 5.0 Beta anti virus release. Whether they do this or not remains to be seen . But it was not a cool move really to release and sell a firewall that was not what it should be and is really in beta mode as they did . Maybe they needed funds for research lol. Maybe thats why they want to run the internet liscencing department . :)

    I mean, that 1.5 version is it be released in June. There is no beta-version any more.
    1.5 version has several additinoal features and fixed bugs. But everything should be tested carefully. You dont want unstable product, do you ? :)

    by the way, you may suggest something to be included in 2.0 version ... and it could really be included. it's not a joke ! :cool:

    Hi Root and everyone else

    There are some great firewalls and some not so great firewalls out there and I am definatley not a pro in the area but I belive if a person takes time to investigate and make a informed desicion about software such as whats good and whats not before just installing it, and running it, then it comes to the question of, is that person useing the software right ? (controling the firewall and making rules)

    Isnt a fire wall only as good as the rules that are written for it by the user?

    I use Kerio 2.1.5 and pass all stealth test at www.pcflank.com

    Regards,
    FireDancer
