"Doesn't work in 10.3"

May 01, 2004  |  By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

 |  Version: Firewalk X 2.3.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've used Firewalk since 10.2. Worked great then. But it has never worked for me under 10.3. I thought it did at first, but I used it to block a specific IP and it wouldn't. And logging doesn't work for flagged items setup in the rules.

I wrote the maker awhile back when I first encountered problem and then just gave up and waited for new version (2.3.6). No chnage, still doesn't work. I've activated OS X Server firewall for now

"Great Support - No Little Snitch Problem"

First Post Ever to VT.

Author has been quick in responding to questions. Was getting a repeated hit and he asked me questions about my Router so it could be resolved, since the Port in question is used by Windows!

"Works great"

April 09, 2004  |  By applestar

 |  Version: Firewalk X 2.3.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Works great, I use this software since more than 18 months without any problems. Well, the menu icon did not work on panther 10.3.3 anymore, but this was fixes with the 2.3.5 version.
Please note that LittleSnitch and FirewalkX do not work properly together. FireWalk will try to deactivate LittleSnitch as a kernel module.
Still, I use this product to protect the DMZ-Server on my local network - and it does work great.

One request for further updates: An import & export of the Firewall settings in ipfw format, so I can transfer my settings to other OSX & linux computers easily.

"Works Great"

April 08, 2004  |  By The_G5_Guy

 |  Version: Firewalk X 2.3.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is one of the best firewalls I have used. I also like that it cost less than Norton, but still has the same level of security. I have never had a problem with this program and I will continue to use it in the future.

"No Dice and No Start-Up"

November 11, 2003  |  By macateer

 |  Version: Firewalk X 2.3.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Installed the new version with old results. System boots and then hangs as apps are starting up. Love the product and hope that it will eventually work on my Panther intatllation. My rating is for the Panther installation. Five stars for Jaguar.

"yay! it works again"

November 10, 2003  |  By ryx

 |  Version: Firewalk X 2.3.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Just installed 2.3.1 and all of the previous problems have been fixed - so now I'll rate it. No boot problems and no finder problems. Good Firewall, I esp. like the stealth features. I have used it it for months with no problems except the boot problems in the last version. The only suggestion I have would be to consolidate the pop up warnings into one dialog that appends new warnings, so instead of leaning on the return key after being absent for a few days, I can inspect them all at once, click on the ones I need to act on, and dismiss them all with one click.
