Firewall Builder v4.1 released

We are happy to announce that V4.1 in now released! You can download it from our website here:

http://www.fwbuilder.org/4.0/docs/firewall_builder_packages.html

V4.1 includes new enhancements and features including:

- Support for Address Table objects that use the iptables ipset module

- Integrated SSH tools (plink.exe and pscp.exe) in Windows installer package

- New toolbar shortcut to view complete generated firewall configuration files in the GUI

Users requested the iptables ipset module support for dynamic environments where existing firewall rules need to be updated with a new object to match (IP address or IP subnet). IP sets provide an efficient way to do this without requiring a reload of your iptables rules.

The integrated SSH tools make it easy for Windows users to utilize the built-in Firewall Builder installer functions. No need to load additional software and update your preferences, everything you need is already there.

Want to know what your configuration will look like? The "inspect" function allows you to preview your configuration files in the Firewall Builder GUI before you deploy them to your firewalls.

Have suggestions for features you would like us to add? Leave us a comment and we'll consider it for future releases.

Vadim and Mike
