kerio pfw replacement:mission impossible

Threaded View
I've looked at half a dozen firewalls and researched forum  
discussions on this without success.

So far I have yet to find a firewall that, like the best kerio pfw  
2.1.nn accomplished the following:

listing all the rules in one window and allowing modification in the  
same window.

automatically blocking new programs without me having to worry about  
a program I forget to make rules about, thus forcing me to decide  
whether the program is safe.

maintaining a realtime log where you can actually watch in near real  
time connections and data transfer by IP or domain name listing the  
rule that applies.

lightweight installs and uninstalls without problems.

many other features I do not see in other personal firewalls.

kerio pfw will not run on windows 7. I may switch to xp just so I  
can use it again.

Yep. I was in your shoes back a few months ago. See my  
https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r31048210-What-s-a-good-free-standalone-firewall-program-for-64-bit-W7-HPE-SP1
forum thread. I loved Kerio Personal Firewall in Windows XP Pro SP3  
until it started blue screen (a known issue -- see  
https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r25920008-Firewall-to-replace-Kerio ,  
https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r23283834-For-those-who-still-use-old-KPF-v2-1-5
, etc.) that forced me to get Outpost Firewall 2009. :/ Currently, I use  
PC Tools Firewall Plus v7.0.0.123 in my 2.5 months old 64-bit W7 HPE SP1  
OS. It's OK though.
