    Hi,

    I have two questions in regard of Outpost pro :

    1) I don't know why but the icon of Outpost pro on my tray bar is a white question mark in a blue bubble, why? how can I revert it back to what it should be? and what is the meaning of this icon?

    2) Is there a tutorial or something like what Blackspear does so well to make sure that Outpost is configure for maximum security and maximum speed?

    Thank you,
    Atomas31

    1.) this means ur firewall is in rules mode. this should be fine. i included a pic so u can see the various icons.

    2.) i dont know of any tutorial except for this guide which is old and made for v2.0 firewall (i think). hasnt been updated since 18-04-2003.

    1. Right click on system tray icon ----> Policy ---> click Block most mode.

    The "question mark" mode brings up the Rules Wizard when an application wants access to the internet. It is convenient when first setting up Outpost. After that, it is best to leave Outpost in the Block Most mode.


    2. See Paranoid2000's guide @ http://www.outpostfirewall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9858


    Edit: Sorry, already answered by previous poster.

    Thank's guy for your answer,

    I have look the two guide and both are for previous version and the one from Paranoid2000 is also very long and confusing for me...

    I think it's a shame that Blackspear doesn't use Outpost so he could have made what he is as made for NOD32 :-(

    Anyway thank you WSFuser and aagfr for your answers,

    that link is rele helpful, however the guide require a lot of interactivity and tweaking compared to checking boxes in nod32. and secondly some of the plugins mentioned arent that compatible with the latest 2.7.
