Is there plans to include application protection in later versions of kerio win route firewall?
I talking bout making sure that malicious programs (e.g. viruses) wont send any of your information out e.g. using port 21 that you opened for ftp client.

What EXACTLY do you mean?

KWF can't block certain apps from sending stuff since it doesn't know which apps are sending data, it just knows on which ports. And you can block ports...

Application level firewalls only work if you run the firewall on the same computer that you're trying to protect. KWF is meant for protecting networks, not an individual PC.

What you could do is run a firewall on the PC's themselves and configure that to only allow specific programs outgoing traffic. The standard XP SP2 firewall could do this.
