Will you continue to provide updates on the 64 bit version?

Yes, but I'm not expecting any. The current version does everything it needs to do, and I'm not planning to add any cute new features.

Thanks for all your help.

Still v1.9 but with some code cleanup. Avoids some potential timing problems.

For users who are afraid that their firewall might somehow spontaneously turn itself off, and really want a tray icon to inform them when it happens, and are willing to sacrifice the extra CPU cycles to run it, here is "a two-state solution". Install the attached PET.

I am using the latest v1.9 in the latest version of lucid 5282s2. Just tried the tray icon pet but it does not seem to alter it in any way. Am I missing something?

The only Lupu I have is lupu-5.2.8.7-20150702 and it works there. If you temporarily switch the firewall on/off, you should see the icon change from full-height to half-height.

I was missing something. I did not think to turn the firewall off to test. Now working in lucid 5287s2, wary551 and racy55.
Thanks for the help.

Excellent. Were you maybe expecting something like a red/green icon?

Consider this: how does a red/green icon appear to someone who is colour-blind?

Yes, or something like it but I take your point.

Still using the older 1.9 version for 64 bit.

I noticed 2 items and before you say impossible.... something wasn't quite right ... I just can't pinpoint it....see #2:

1. An easy one... The 1.9 version - when you set up the initial firewall with PFM, it then closes out and doesn't go back to your menu. Not the end of the world -- just a note in case you wish to fix.

2. When running the default firewall first (Linux-Firewall), I had chose to install PWM firewall, on top of it. Of course, that was a mistake as I didn't recall the firewall already being installed but seems that 2nd install blocked me from getting out on the web. I had to uninstall and reinstall either firewall and I was ok, again.

Still love the application. I'm just not sure how/why #2 is happening.

That is already fixed in the latest v1.9 posted now.

I don't have a copy of Quirky Xerus, so I don't know what kind of default firewall it is running. It may be starting its firewall differently from regular Puppies. But I am surprised that it is blocking Internet. I will check this out.

The Linux Firewall Configuration Utility in "automagic mode" generates EXACTLY the same firewall script (/etc/rc.d/rc.firewall) as used by PFM.

The current PFM PET has a post-install script that will kill any active firewall. So the first run of PFM gets you a clean start.

Precise has the same default firewall setup as Quirky Xerus. I will run some tests on it.

1. I set up Precise 571.
2. I ran the Linux Firewall Configuration Utility in automagic mode. This started a firewall.
3. I installed the peasyfwmon-1.9.pet. Its post-install script shut down the current firewall and deleted the file /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall.
4. I ran PFM from the Network menu. This installed and launched a new firewall - ie. a new version of /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall.
5. I checked WiFi access. There were no problems.

So I cannot replicate your situation.

PFM v2.0 posted above. Some changes to how it removes old firewalls.

Thanks for your continued work on what I'm starting to feel is a must have; at least adding it to my version of WoofQ.

I'll continue to test and truly appreciate what you're doing here.
