    The new version looks pretty cool, nice that you added a network monitor. At the moment I'm still using WFC, mainly because of its simplicity. But I just may have to check out Simplewall.

    "Block for now - ask later" has disappeared (intentional or a bug ?)

    Otherwise v3.0.2 working OK, no obvious problems.

    Very cool open source project, kudos to the dev!

    However, I am seeing some events I have a hard time explaining to myself. For instance, I have added the following rule for WS discovery:
    Code:
    <item name="WSD" rule="ff02::c:3702;239.255.255.250:3702;192.168.0.0/16" dir="2" protocol="17" apps="C:\windows\system32\dashost.exe" is_enabled="true" />
    Yet despite this rule, I still see traffic that matches this rule is being blocked by simplewall:
    Code:
    "‎23-‎Jun-‎19 ‏‎21:52:43","NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE","C:\windows\system32\dashost.exe","ff02::c:3702","ws-discovery","UDP","simplewall\BlockConnectionsV6","#88041","Outbound","Blocked"
    There's no other firewall or similar product installed, so I'm not sure what's going on there...maybe I shouldn't be matching IPv4/IPv6 IP/port combo's and subnets in the same rule?

    EDIT1: just checked out how this rule was actually created in the WFP, and the IPv6 address was added with the port being part of the IP, not as the actual port:
    Code:
    <addr>ff02::c:3702</addr>
    EDIT2: solved, using the following syntax (encapsulating the IP in [ ]) seems to be separating IP and port correctly:
    Code:
    [ff02::c]:3702
    Great stuff! :thumb:

    v3.0.3 appears to be working OK.....but some rules and permissions had been altered after installing.

    Probably worth checking through your rules to be safe, it might have just been a glitch on my end.

    I still have issues with notifications taking 30 seconds to pop up, ending up in me having to restart a new program three times in order to allow it efficiently.
    I know there was a fix for it a while back because I complained on GitHub, but it is back.

    - Displaying timeout was removed in 3.0.1.
    - If you need display already popped up notifications, just hover tray icon for some time.
    - If you about timeout between same notifications, this was configurable (in settings).

    ps: where it's on GitHub?

    great program, it only mainly misses modification detection, which can be circumvented if u let eset trial expire (I suggest you buy it since its great though), then active protection will stop but the firewall from eset still works, so if s.o. modifies simplewall, eset would alert
    eset operates on windows firewall so there is zero conflict experience (a few dns expired problem but easily solved), eset also adds custom rules that are missing in simplewall, I think they work fantastic in tandem

    otherwise SW could implement an active modification detection of its own processes and custom rules (block specific ip addresses and sites)

    s.o. = someone

    i have installed the beta and stable version. however, simplewall doesnt start up on the tray.
    At msconfig, the app is running. Those applications that are blocked , continue to be blocked. But no pop ups for new apps but are blocked as well

    I have also checked all in the General Configuration. I am running Windows 7 Home

    Works great in tandem (Eset Internet Security, SW).
    SW has improved, I am impressed.
