    When they finally get it right? :D

    They keep adding features, but don't make them work as well as possible before working on new feature. They shouldn't have taken out of beta so quickly, and they shouldn't throw new beta features into full release software, they should have beta versions with the new features to make sure they are fully working before making it final release. From conversations with another person we came to the realization that they really don't fully know what they are doing, and this not the original team that worked on Kerio/Tiny 2.x by any means. I'm not sure if any of the original team is with the company anymore, or at least on the firewall project.

    Kerio 4.xx is interesting, but I find it to be somewhat awkward compared to 2.1.5. I'd stick with 2.1.5 if I were you. 4.xx is also very lacking in logging. You can't see what's really going on as it won't log packets to unopened ports like 2.1.5 does. And 4.xx doesn't really offer much new either. 2.1.5 is simply the best...

    The logging issue really bothers me also, it seems they want to built a firewall for idiots, not people who expect the firewall to do everything it should. Even with the gateway feature enabled, you still can't log traffic to unopened ports.... Horrible firewall design....
