    Seems nice and easy to configure. Also has a small memory usage. :)

    It does have some potential. There is one forum member I know who has had nothing but BSODs and problems with all versions, and has had to reinstall Windows due to this, so beware, but it seems that it runs alright for most people. It's worth keeping an eye on I think in future releases. It is very light.

    Well, I've been having BSODs and freezes (but nothing to a point of having to reinstall Windows).

    If you're getting that, then I'd dump it for now. A BSOD in a firewall can never be good, right? Or in any program for that matter. I'm glad you mentioned it, so now that makes 2 people having troubles.. Still needs work I guess...

    I'm not going to dump it, i'm going to continue using it and report the crashes to them.

    I tried it for a couple days but noticed that my handle count was over 45000 so i had to ditch it. Looks promising though.

    Just put it on here tonight (the 1.056 beta) and they have fixed some previous issues like the stealthing of ports 0 and 1, however, now I am getting absolutely no network logging here. The file system logging appears to be working, but no network logging. Strange..

    Otherwise, it is working ok. It also now handles proxy and loopback traffic properly, which is good.

    I would call it a work in progress yet, but it seems worth keeping an eye on...
