Preferred Solution: Sunbelt Kerio Firewall

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Sunbelt Kerio Firewall

Is that the old, free one? Try Comodo. It is one of the best and free besides.

Good Morning all,

I was using ZoneAlarm Pro which i found was good but wanted a change, so i downloaded Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4. It seems fine apart from when i open Azureus i get the "Outgoing Connection Alert (Internet)" Popup come up constantly - to the point where i was constantly clicking either "permit or Deny". I got so fed up i forced the program to close!

Is there anyway round this or should i bite the bullet and find another firewall/revert back to ZA pro?

Cheers in advance!

Earlier this evening when I was reading a topic on BC, my screen suddenly went black, and then I got this BSOD related to my firewall driver engine.


Stop: 0x000000D1
(0xF99F4070, Ox00000002, 0x00000000, 0xEFEE7C5F)

fwdrv.sys - addressEFEE7C5F base at EFED30000
Date Stamp 4624d37a

I looked up the driver name, and it is the engine for the Sunbelt Personal Firewall. I've searched their site, but have seen no mention of their driver causing a BSOD.

I have the latest version, the driver is in the proper folder and there is only one copy. I have not seen any warning or error messages in event viewer connected with this issue or the time of the BSOD. Sunbelt firewall did not issue any warnings or alerts about a malfunction, and I see nothing pertinent in the logs.

The most recent changes to the computer have been uninstalling Firefox 1.? and installing Firefox Reinstalling McAfee Site Advisor - latest version, flashblock, NoScript, Smiley Xtra, and installing colorful tabs. I have also installed Comodo BoClean 4.25. I have not had any issues with this firewall until now.

I have Windows XP Home OEM
Dell Dimension 2400

Any ideas?

I've been using Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall for a short while now and figured out most of it but am having troubles with it refusing to let Hotmail load. I have put Hotmail into the exceptions list and even put it in as *hotmail and hotmail* and done the same for the other pages that hotmail loads up for checking emails etc but nothing seems to work.

The weird thing is that any other page I have put into exceptions has worked fine.

Could someone please help out on this?

Hi all, My firewall has alerted me to an unusual outgoing connection attempt with the following...

Microsoft file and printer sharing trying to make outgoing connection
with I.P. address on port microsoft-ds [445]

This is unusual in that I never see any unexpected outgoing connection attempts. The firewall is set to alert me to and unknown incoming or outgoing connections.

I disabled file and printer sharing on my LAN but after rebooting the same connection attempt was made again so after denying permission for a second time I was interested to find out more.

I have googled the IP and found it is located somewhere near Johannesburg but I'm kind of stuck getting any further and not sure how I might find out more.

Really what I'm trying to find out is why my computer might be trying to connect to this address seemingly of its own accord and if this is something I need to be concerned about?

Can anyone help me shed some more light on this please?

I'm attempting to download an update for Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall (version 4.3.268) but it's taking a ridiculously long time. The rate it's going I should think it'll end up taking longer than three hours, which is a bit odd since to my knowledge it's not that enormous a program. Should it be taking this long or is something wrong? The status bar isn't advancing at all and I don't know if there's a better way to do it.

Sorry if this is in the wrong section. Assume it's a Kerio-specific problem because everything else on my broadband connection is fine. I'm running XP.

Thanks. Probably a stupid question.

I cannot believe the recent McAfee PFW 8.0 upgrade requires eight services and ten running files using approx 88MB memory per Task Manager! This is just unacceptable. I uninstalled all things McAfee but the FW ages ago and that is about to get the axe, too, I'm afraid. My subscription is not up until April but I am so disgusted I may just not wait til them to uninstall! Because I only want to select a FW with continued development (ruling out Sygate), I have narrowed the field to Sunbelt Kerio PFW and Comodo PFW, with a present leaning towards the SKPF. I have been readiing up on them for some time now on several forums & the latest releases of both appear to offer excellent protection & run pretty light on resources. They both appear to have a learning/basic mode with out-of-the-box ease of installation/setup. Comodo is currently free (but must register) and SBKF is currently $19.95/yr with a $10.00 renewal fee each year thereafter.Given what I have onboard realtime (see my signature), would users of these firewalls please offer their advice,suggestions, warnings as to how the two might perform (or conflict) on my system? Would you anticipate any problems/conflicts with what I have onboard?

A:Sunbelt Kerio Fw Or Comodo Fw?

I have a similar set up to you and I run Comodo. Your correct in that you have to register comodo but that is only foer the license key - I used a throw away gmail address for this.

System resoourse seem light and do not seem to be interupting day to day running.

Previously I was running Kerio but got fed up with the free version constantly reminding me to upgrade.

As I said Comodo does everything I want it to do and there is an official forum with custom rulesets.

Load it and give it a go.

I have recently bought a new Acer Laptop, running on Win XP and Firefox 3.0 - everything fine! To start with I used the XP firewall, but then installed the latest version of Sunbelt (Kerio) Firewall. I chose Sunbelt instead of Comodo because I wanted an easier to use firewall for my laptop.

Everything OK except when accessing certain sites using my saved passwords, it takes much longer to log on to the site. Especially with my much-used iGoogle home page. With this Firefox eventually shows 'done' but nothing shows. I then exit Firefox and reopen Firefox and all the logged-on Google page is there. I have studied the Sunbelt manual and configuration dialogue windows but just cannot see what I can do. Is this fault because the Google analytical function is being blocked?

Any help please?

A:Does anyone have Sunbelt Firewall Beta 4.7.5 ?

Hello and welcome:
Edit: never mind, someone messaged me a download link for the firewall.
Dumb question, but: why would you want a link to an ancient, unsupported security program?
IIRC Sunbelt Firewall beta 4.7.5 dates back to at least 2011 or 2012 and was never released.
And the company was sold long ago.
I certainly hope you're not looking for the program to protect a working computer.

I use the Sunbelt Personal Firewall version 4.6.1861 and I was wondering if I should temporarily disable the firewall whenever I install/uninstall a program or is it ok if I just leave it on? I use Windows XP

A:Sunbelt personal firewall configuration

You should never disable your firewall unless absolutely necessary. I use Sunbelt and I've never had any problems installing software and have never needed to disable the firewall.

The only time you might have to disable it is when you're doing a major Windows update like XP SP3. When you do it's a good idea to disconnect from the internet.

Well the only suggestion I can offer you is get a new firewall because that one does not like your computer and is most likely conflicting with another program. But if you could run this just to be sure:Download BlueScreenViewNo installation required.Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

I recently cleaned my computer of all viruses and malware thanks to the malware removal logs here at bc, so it shouldnt be any malware slowing it down, and i run multiple scans daily. But could it be some OTHER program? - Well actually I'm pretty sure it is sunbelt because when i disable the firewall, operation is much quicker.

Please advise me on what actions I can take to resolve this issue.

Yes, it is the fact! The BSOD is caused by Sunblet Firewall, which is out of market over around 3 years.

I had a Malware infection a month or so ago. Farbar helped me clean it out. As part of the clean-up process I installed Sunbelt Personal Firewall 4. At the time I had a home network with 3 computers on it, all with Windows XP. The one with the Malware infection is wired (we'll call it WIRED) and the other two were wireless.

We got a new computer for Christmas (we'll call it NEW), also with Windows XP. I tried to set it up as wireless with all the protection that I had on WIRED, including Sunbelt Personal Firewall. My intent is to move one of the users (including Documents, Pictures, Music, etc) from WIRED to NEW. NEW was able to see the internet and one of my other wireless computers, but was not able to see WIRED. I tried to ping WIRED from NEW and NEW from WIRED but everything timed out.

I looked around the Sunbelt settings and found Trusted area under Network Security.
I added Home network with an IP range to include all of my PCs (and my router) on both WIRED and NEW. I left the Adapter at "any" (I figured once I got what I needed working, I could come back and see if I could tighten the security a little more). At that point ping started to work, so I hoped I was in business.

I tried to enter WIRED's IP address in Windows Explorer from NEW to see WIRED's shared directories. It failed (I believe the message was "Windows cannot find '<IP address>'. I also tried to create a Network Place, but it didn't recognize WIRED by name, or by IP ad... Read more

A:Sunbelt Firewall - How share directories on network

Are the wireless connections encrypted?

For some reason Sunbelt Firewall cannot protect an encrypted connection. Instead of protecting it, Sunbelt blocks it. This tactic is known as Added encryption. Most likely, if you do not have a strong router or if your router is a bit older, then you should lower the protection level on the router.

A:Kerio Firewall

I have been using the (free) Kerio Firewall for about three years without problem, other than when it flags up an incoming or outgoing message I usually cannot understand what the potential danger is, if any. I usually click 'No', and if it persists I click the box to make the rejection permanent.
I can't answer your first question, but as regards startup you should find the option, after having started it manually, by right-clicking the taskbar icon, choosing Administration, and find the option at the bottom of the Miscellaneous tab.

I am running Sunbelt Personal Firewall and Spyware Doctor.

It's more likely that the two programs don't play well together. Do you have other spyware programs and do any of them conflict with Sunbelt? It's possible that Sunbelt has an issue with this program that needs to be addressed by them. So you might want to tell them about it or check their forum because you won't be the only one with this problem.

I would like to know what is your opinion about Kerio Personal Firewall.

I would like to install it but I need some advice.

Thanks in advance for your replies.


A:What do you think about Kerio Personal Firewall?

I use Kerio Personal Firewall instead of the Windows XP firewall at home. I think it's a lot better because of the ability to see what programs are executing and which ports are being used to listen on your computer.

I've also heard that the XP firewall may get disabled by certain types of viruses, leaving you unprotected.

I think you should try it out; it's free for home users anyways. If you don't like it you can always uninstall it and try ZoneAlarm or some other type of firewall.

ok, here's the story.
I upgraded to xp home edition about 3 wks ago. Things are pretty smooth with no glitches, almost. I am running an inexpensive computer with lots of hard drive space and 256k memory.
I installed the free version of kerio 2.1 personal firewall. I am very much the novice on what to allow and what to deny permission but that is a different story, I hope.
I called the co. that built my computer and they suggested that i uninstall kerio, then reinstall which I did. The reason was because each time I tried to open "status,administration", or anything, I got a box stating that Kerio was running on a remote computer(the box was checked) and the "status window" box was checked. Nothing happens when I try to change to the "local host" box and the Admin box.
When I boot up, I get two pop up boxes, one stating:
Ffvarlibinit:var_server_starterror 1(10048:bind()failed
and the other stating:
KFE initialization failed: invalid parameter
Now the crazy part about it is that Kerio is currently active and running. I called Kerio and they told me they do not support the free version. So, basically, I can't get into the firewall to make any changes or do anything to anything to this program. By the way, when I began to uninstall there were two Kerio's. One was the Kerio 2.1 and the other was just Kerio. On uninstallation of Kerio, it said I would have to restart in VGA to uninstall. I have no clue as to what that is or what to do. ... Read more

I recently read a review on wilders.org of the Kerio Personal Firewall and thought I'd give it a test run since, though I've been a long time user of Zone Alarm, I have had some problems with it at times.

I installed Kerio this weekend on a NT machine and a Win98 machine which are networked with TCP/IP and NETbeui. It installs beautifully and seems less intrusive than ZA though I haven't tried uninstalling it which is a real pain with ZA. It has many easy to configure options and I liked it.

I ran a port and IP attack from Gibson's Research site and came up clean and also downloaded Gibson's locally driven (so you can assign specific IP addresses to check) executable and also came up clean even with NETbeui.

I thought I'd pass this info on since so many folks have trouble with the setup and uninstalls of ZA. Again, nothing really against ZA, it's been a workhorse for a long while and free so who can complain but sometimes there's a better mousetrap.

I just installed Kerio Personal Firewall and rebooted and i'm getting an error message once windows loads and kerio's GUI doesn't load and my dial-up shortcut on my desktop wont work ither along with other things. I reinstalled Kerio and it still does it but it seems like its not doing it every time. I'll reboot a couple of time and it will be fine and then the next time i get the error and have to reboot. Along with Kerio i am running Kaspersky AV and i disabled the Windows XP built-in firewall.

The error is:

Could not start DB server: Socket () failed.

Any idea why it is doing this?

Hi. I?m looking for some basic advice with running Kerio personal firewall. I haven?t purchased the full version, FYI. I?ve been using it for the last couple months, ever since discovering I had some malware issues, which I got sorted out finally in this thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic85082-30.html My issue is that while there were a number of things I could tell to permanently allow when I first installed it, there?s a lot of other things that pop up that I honestly don?t know if I should be approving or denying. I?ve avoided setting any of these questionable ones to a permanent setting one way or the other, but I?d really like to get a better grasp on what I should be allowing and what not to allow. Here?s some examples of things I?m confused about:I?ll get popups asking to execute ?cleanup? for various applications?no idea WTF that is. I?ve both denied and approved it at various times to see if it makes a difference. For photoshop and acrobat I didn?t notice a difference. If I try running dreamweaver, however, it won?t work unless I approve it?plus it pops up asking for that approval twice before it will run. I have no idea what it?s even doing. That troubles me.Example details:Application path: c:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\~e5d141.tmpDescription: CleanupFile version: 1, 0, 0, 1Product name: Macrovision Europe Ltd.

Hi all,

Can anyone help me out how to block Team Viewer in Kerio Firewall?

A:Block TeamViewer in Kerio Firewall

I don't use that firewall, but I'd assume you could try blocking it by program name. Since TeamViewer doesn't require any ports being opened, it'll be harder to block it using ports.

Hi, just a small question here. I've just got rid of ZoneAlarm because of the problem it created with Add/Remove programs on my computer. I installed Kerio Personal Firewall instead. But everytime I log off my account or shut down the computer, an error message appears. It was too fast (just for half a second) that I cannot read it, but something like "the program failed to initalize because windows is shutting down". Actually, this is not even a problem since everything is perfectly fine. But I wonder why that happens and what I can do to get rid of it.

A:kerio firewall error message

Ok, so whats happening is that you are getting the error message: The application failed to intialize because the Window station is shutting down.


Kerio Firewall is not shutting down, or attempting to run at shutdown...


Look in options in the settting if Kerio Firewall, and disable everything, and slowly re enable one thing at a time, and shutdown after one is disabled. Reboot, and enable another one and shut down, etc, etc./...

Kerio to scrap desktop firewallBy Joris EversStaff Writer, CNET News.comPublished: October 19, 2005, 5:55 PM PDT Kerio will stop offering its Kerio Personal Firewall product as of Dec. 31 but will continue to support existing customers until the end of next year...Kerio is pulling out of the desktop firewall space because it can't compete with security suites that bundle a firewall with antivirus and spyware-fighting software, the company said. Such products are sold by companies including Symantec, McAfee, Trend Micro and Zone Labs.news.comThe rumors have been out a while so I guess this makes it official. Too bad, not having all the extra bells and whistles like AV & anti-spyware is what makes Kerio stand out in the first place. As such, Kerio should be ahead of the competition not behind.

A:Kerio To Scrap Desktop Firewall

Since firewalls do not need updating like AVs, etc. and seldom issue new versions, smart users will download the latest version before it disappears. The same may be said for Sygate, which may at some time in the future stop supporting its free firewall no that ownship is changing.
