I'd love to be able to tell Jetico to consider the IPs or IP ranges from a text file (and I'd also like that for ports).

For example, if I wanted to block all the IPs from China, it would be hard work to manually input every IP range. Instead, I'd like to point Jetico a text file containing the IPs and IP ranges I want it to block.

Would also be cool for Jetico to give the option to show a flag for the IP address you're trying to connect to or that tries to connect from.

To further stretch the post, would be useful to have a button for looking up an IP when the pop-up for an ask rule shows. Or maybe give the option to automatically pass the IP string to a free utility like IPNetInfo and let that utility show information about that IP. Would be very convenient rather than manually opening the application and pasting in the ip and pressing OK.

All these help in taking better decisions whether to allow or deny access to a request.

Thank you.

Hello!

Could we get some feedback from the developers in regard to what requests they plan to implement in the next versions? I'm using Jetico for a long time now and I didn't notice any interface-related improvements. At a functional level Jetico may have improved a lot, but I think the main reason Jetico customers use this application is because of the way it allows to create rules, and rules do get manipulated a lot within the GUI.

My opinion is that developers should invest a bit more time in improving the GUI, and by that I don't mean the guy doesn't look good, on contrary, the GUI is excellent, but I'm referring to different type of utilities that can be used from within the GUI.

For example, I would very much like to have a search box (located somewhere in the menu bar, or maybe a button that opens up a window) in which I can type a keyword and that would give me results showing rules matching the keyword and even identifying the rules' location.

A firewall as versatile as Jetico calls for features like this.

Thank you.

Important
  • Disk Access filter
    Why: to limit access to non-system (media, backup, etc) disks to trusted apps, protect system paths.
  • Purge applications
    Why: it is relatively easy to implement, and is torturous to work without at times


Medium
  • Hide table from the popup templates (for logical, non-functional roots)
  • Drag support for both Groups and their entries
  • «Delete» in Group entry context menu
  • Remember settings on exit (as it already does on manual GUI restart)
  • Do not group if single entry in Applications network monitor
  • «Expand All» in Applications network monitor
  • Protocol column in Applications network monitor
  • Ports Group


Minor
  • App Name column (patheless)
  • Gray out icon and text for inactive rules
  • Option to use own icons (default are too 3.11)
  • Add Default action: ask

& more frequent updates and news from the devs

Some Suggestions:

- I like the idea of a clean-up option to be able to remove all rules with non-existing application paths. (it takes a long time to clean-up old rules manually)

- Save user changes made to the GUI column width and order in real-time. (changes aren't being saved after a system reboot)  The only way to save the order right now is to go to Jetico system tray icon and right click on it and select "exit" and then restart the interface again.

- Application Checksum table. All application checksums should just be added to the table silently (no popup). Only when there is a change in the applications checksum should there be a popup notifiying you of the change and if you would like to update the existing application checksum rule or not.

- Groups tab: A section for Ports and Mac Addresses.

- In the Logs, when you right click on a log and select "create rule" it should already know based on the packets log parameters what the most logical table under Optimal Protection that the rule should be placed into. By default this table should be highlighted, so that the majority of the time users can just click "ok" and not have to try to figure out which table to pick.

- Also in the Logs, when you right click on a log and select "create rule" it would be great if some additional information from the "misc" column was added to the rule also. For example for a ICMP packet log if the created rule also included the ICMP type and code that was listed under misc. ARP packet log if it also included the ARP opcode to the rule. TCP packet log if it added the TCP flags, ect. That way the created rule is much more complete.


Thank you for listening!  :beer:

Hi, I'd like the following feature:

- manually triggered action (button in main window)  that removes rules with non-existing application paths. My Ruleset is filling up with temporary or already uninstalled apps.
- Button to quickly select rule persistence (once or permanent) while adding rule in popup dialog.
- Auto detect fullscreen and appropriate rule to avoid hangs while playing games

Also an option to lock rules in place and the ability to create port groups (just like IP address and Applications work).

Great piece of software this is, but there's room for a whole lot of minor improvements that would make using it a lot more pleasurable!

I bow to you.

Is JPF ever going to have support for remote access?

Like once connected to a host you get its configuration (security policies) and you receive all popus that would normally appear show on the host system.

Just like NetLimiter does, but this would be way cooler.

nice one! they might even do it soon, THAT way. :)

major help would be in organization,
- I like to network-block my rules together.
-- oooo maybe i can put my block-pic here, checking...
mini

large

stretch

-------------------you have to download last 2 for full detail.

like, a bunch of IE rules.(I do not just 'any' port 80)
- sort the rules together and move them one step,
-- changing their 'true' order, so they're all together, after.
--- maybe a self resetting check box to allow a 'true' re-ordering in 'sort' mode.
added:
(or, just let the selected ones stay selected from 'sort' to 'sort'.)

Fact: being able to sort columns would destroy the important rule-order;
- want: give option to open a window(or program like open office calc)with the selected rules, where we can 'sort' them, and work with them,,, like setting a certain group of items to 'reject',,, and upon a 'save' or 'confirm', it alters those rules in the firewall, while leaving them in the same order.
- and maybe have an option to save the new 'sort order' too,
- as well as deleted items and/or new rules.
or maybe just one new column "order" with numbers representing the actual order of rules. and then enabling sorting will be safe.

Hey,
I may seem intense with firewall rules, but this is another bonus:
- Avira anti-virus wasting peoples time.
- Reason: it tries(does) to connect to ipv6 updates, and tries and tries and tries...
with a close eye on the 'ask' rules(which i always log), seeing this alerted me to an oddity: [2a01:138:a001:201::21]...
- so i blocked it, unknowingly forcing Avira to choose ipv4 protocol that my computer understands.

Another want?
- here's one that no-one has:

HI ! (lets get at it... :)

1) About Dynamic Disks, and software RAID:
Q: v2 instable? (agreed, v1 works great, though)
A: I found Jetico because getting a firewall to work with dynamic disks on xp(pro) is no treat, I have learnt.
- xp is not installed in/on a Raid volume, but it is on a dynamic volume and there is 'RAID' all around, not a single 'standard' partition to be seen.
- the only difference I can quickly see between v1 and v2, is the fact that v2 is installed as a privileged service, as were the other firewalls I tried that did not work for me.
-- and so, take note, if your lan card is enabled, and v1 is installed, and the only thing between computer and internet, while computer waits for you to ctrl+alt+del (or whatever your setup) before a user logs on, you may be at risk... (I disable net card every time before shutdown... when windows doesn't crash ;)

2) This is a double, as part of what I do with a firewall is help stop unnecessary traffic:

2a) If we could make a rule for a specific IP or MAC address, that when initialized it logs the "IP/MAC + port(specific or any or...) + ..." just once, then counts how many times it is 'true', then after playing game online(for example) deactivate the rule which then causes the count to be logged, as well as one more "IP/MAC + port(specific or any or...) + ..." line.
- the less that's written, the faster the computer.
 - Added: ___ I don't mean to write the last time the rule was 'true' at deactivation, as that would slow things down, keeping track of 'true's; I mean, if it comes true within 10seconds??? of deactivation.
-- don't want to wait for a rule that was only true once. :)

2b) If there was a setting to have automatic creation of '2a' type rules for each different 'attack'.

3) may have been done, but color is important to fast log scanning. (v1 has same blue for debug and info, for example)

I too am a hair's width from putting money on a firewall, even though I do all the the leg work. :)

Hm… That's an interesting idea, thanks for pointing to it. At first glance it looks quite possible to do, the XML config structure is clear enough.

Of course, even if it is doable, it does not cancel my request since changing the 4 radio-buttons is not so convenient and efficient as selecting a tray-icon-menu item. :)

PS: Привет.


Added:
It's totally amazing! I checked it, and with direct XML editing I can create on the Policy Configuration page almost anything I need, and it does work!
I already created the basic (not covering all the tables) set of quick switches for imitating the exact Outpost policies (the only problem is intersecting with default filters defined in JPF, so I'll probably have to remove them at all, but I don't use them anyway), and it seems to work as expected.

Controls on summary page are not hardcoded, they are defined in config. You probably have noticed that these controls actually enable and disable some of existing rules. You may try to add Outpost-style switch by tweaking the config. Unfortunately there is no documented way of how to do it (or I don't know of such document).
