Kerio 2.1.5 firewall engine version is dated 30 april 2003 (less than 2
years old)...the drivers version 3 created 15 april 2002 (less than 3
years old) so please again, dont generalise about 5 years ago.The point
is that it has outgoin application filtering, and doesnt use 75% cpu
usage that you seem to suggest all application firewalls consumes.Perhaps
your inability to configure NIS properly , reflects your opinion that ALL
application firewalls cause problems.
