help with kerio 4 personal firewall

Hi, I have been using the above firewall about a week now, and have just
noticed that after 30 days some of its abilities are reduced, does anyone
know if after that the firewall is still ok, i'ts meant to be freeware.
Many thanks.

Two versions of Kerio Personal Firewall are available: full (paid) and freeware (free of charge).

The same installation package is used for both version. After installation the product behaves as a 30-days trial version (full version limited by time). If the product is not registered by the expiration date, it becomes freeware. The product becomes a full version after license purchase and product registration (for detailed information refer to chapter “Registration”.

Freeware versions are limited by the following restrictions:

It is available for personal and/or noncommercial use only.

Web content filtering, including its logs and statistics, is not available (see chapter Chapter ).

It cannot be used at Internet Gateways (refer to chapter “Preferences”

Logs cannot be sent to Syslog server (details in chapter“Log Options”.

Configuration cannot be protected by a password and it is not possible to access and administer the firewall remotely.

It cannot be used on server type operating systems, such as Windows NT Server, Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003. If the trial version was installed on any of these systems, the Personal Firewall Engine service will be disabled by the expiration date and it will not be able to restore it.

Thank you Enyo for your detailed reply, after that does the freeware firewall
still remain as as good or viable firewall.

Yes, even after the 30 day trial period, Kerio 4 is very effective as a firewall.
It's true that you lose some features such as web filtering etc, but browsers like Firebird or third-party ad/popup blockers for IE can do the same thing.

Thats correct.

Version 4.0.11 RC1 (26 Jan 2004)

+ added Dutch translation (unfinished yet)
+ automatically uses the most suitable help file depending on the selected language
+ KPF is now able to analyze kernel dumps and determine, whether crash was caused by KPF
+ when AVG 7 is detected during first KPF start, apropriate application rules are created automaticaly (support for AVG bundle)

- changed update server's and registration server's address resolving so it won't trigger automatic dial on Windows 98 ('Generate crash dump' checkbox must be disabled)
- changed new adapter handling - adapter is detected again, when user deletes it from trusted zones table
- fixed proxy server detection on NT/2K/XP
- fixed several minor bugs (packet filter editor, DNS resolution, KPF closing)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
