    It works fine on xp sp2(all releases) currently, I use it along with ICF as I'm also testing the new ICF in each version. Be fore warned, its much harder to actually disable the firewall than it seems, if you don't disable the approapriate services alg.exe still redirects ftp traffic causing problems with other firewalls even when ICF, and ICS are not enabled.

    Its used to redirect ftp, and internet connection sharing traffic. It invisibly redirects traffic so when its enabled you must enable the gateway mode as Kerio 2x will block packets to non-listening ports, and port redirection is mostly to non-listening ports.
