Final version of Outpost Personal Firewall Pro 2.1 has been released.

What's new in version 2.1?

New Outpost Personal Firewall Pro 2.1 takes another step beyond the award-winning 2.0 version. The new version features improvements that make it more reliable, flexible and easy to use.

* Revamped user-interface!
* Strenghtened web surfing security!
* Visual alert messages!
* Improved logging system!

Outpost 2.1 has been publicly released and is available for download from www.agnitum.com. New features include:

* Log file control - set limits to the size or age of log entries retained;
* Rewritten Active Content plugin giving control over Flash plugins, animated GIFs and external content;
* Pop-up alerts now appear for Reported connections - and can be enabled for detected attacks;
* Ad-Filter - individual web sites can now be excluded from ad blocking.

Existing third-party plugins for Outpost 2.0 (like Blockpost and HTTPLog) will also work with version 2.1. Configurations can be carried across from 2.0 except for the Active Content plugin - this will need to be reconfigured from scratch due to the changes made in 2.1.

As I said in the 2.1 Beta thread, if logging causes you problems you can disable it.

This version provides options for controlling logging and limiting the database size :)

Hmm, so I've decided to test OutPost Pro. I've run the scans at GRC.com which showed me as stealth and then at http://scan.sygate.com and the scans showed the ports as blocked but not stealthed and I also ran the scan at symantec which showed me as stealth. I'd rather be stealthed. I'm confused.

Go figure... Had it installed for a few hours and managed to crash it. Welcome back ZAPro :)

It just seems to be doing the normal firewall thing at the moment.
It seemed to go beserk and demand that everything be reauthorised when I upgraded Trillian 2.01 to 2.011, Trillian seems to have it finger in everything according to Outpost ;)

Component Control will prompt you a fair bit when you upgrade applications, especially those who hook into everything.

You can of course disable it but i don't recommend doing so.

I have no problem clicking 2 buttons again, I just thought it was strange that I had to reauthorise Steam, for example, because I had updated Trillian.

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
