I find creating rules (inbound or outbound) confusing ??? using Source and Destination (having to switch them around depending on the direction). Maybe it’s me :-[ but I find Sunbelt’s why of doing things alot easier (i.e Local and Remote). Just wondered if anyone felt the same. Which do you prefer?
I like the way old Kerio 2.x handled rule creation: Whenever an intercept dialog popped up, there was a button “Create Rule” and a checkbox “Edit New Rule”. When you first checked the checkbox and then clicked the button, you could immediately edit the new rule to be added.
A big ruleset is not a problem for me if the rules are evaluated that way by the SPI. I prefer to have two rules shown in network monitor instead of one that is broken down into two separate rules “under the hood” by the SPI. I would guess that in/out and any tell the SPI to skip a check (i hope so even after I looked at the ruleset .reg file).It is an hassle to insert the rules and it would be great a button to dulicate existing ones or a hybrid entry like Source or Destination for ports and IPs (if the SPI pars.er handles them in a different way).
I never added these to the whishlist though…
Someone could do that for me…
PS: Nice dumb vulgarity check. But it is easily fooled.
I mean it is pointless to censor a substring, this way the reader is forced to guess the censored word to ***es the meaning of a sentence ;D
By the way… why do the board engine censor only british english?
BTW I know we can live without it… I’m the only one to complain (:SAD) but what about that forum enhancement suggestion section? I really miss some features like an updated smiley set (32px) and a BBcode editor when re-editing posts… 8) (this is too small,really)
As long as functionality is not lost the easy way to input rules should be preferred but I would not trade user-friendlyness with the geekability ;D … I wish for a rule input which make possible to guess what is going on “under the hood”.
I’m not sure now. I’d like more feedback too from others. Like Paul from Russia,he knew a lot… He stopped posting or what?
Or a developer, with a simple explanation why he feels source and destination is more appropriate.
