I would to start by saying that 1) this is the second time i've had to write this, because the preview button didn't work, and my session must've ended so i lost all the text. And 2) KWF is a good product.
Firstly, I am having troubles getting KWF to work in conjunction with IRCPlus (an IRC server) that is running on the same machine. Whenever my chat clients attempt to do soemthing particular (/nickserv services), KWF interferes somehow, and the chat client gets disconnected for no apparent reason. I am assuming this is a technical error, since I see no reason why this should be happening. Is this a known bug? I noticed i read before someone else was also having IRC woes.
Secondly, (more) bugs. I am also haunted with the unexpected shutdown bug. What is the point in having a firewall/routing product on your network, if it doesn't even work? I thought it was supposed to be a little more secure than that.
Thirdly, the missing feature that has stood out for a while now is bandwidth control. This is offered in most other products in this market, and I hope it gets implemented in this latest beta.
I would've thought that by adding features such as "P2P blocking", KWF was now being aimed right at corporate customers. But how can you expect KWF to compete in the corporate market when it "unexpectedly termintes" and has various other little bugs we have become known to live with?
If I remember corrently, KWF6 is due to be released in March, and ISA Server 2004 in April. Both products are running the same schedule. I have tried both betas, and i think KWF6 has a long way to come before it will worthwhile over ISA Server 2k4 in the long run.
I just want a firewall/routing solution that is simple to use, and works.
Anyway, thank you for a pretty good product. I hope it can improve further in the future. If there is anything I can do to help resolve any of these problems, I would be more than happy to.
