this version is only for see the project
a version full working will be the first BETA version

Posted by giancarlo 2007-06-14


Add TrayIcon ( for next ALPHA relase )

Posted by giancarlo 2007-06-14

how install ALPHA 0.1


1) For test it you need to download the zip file and extrat it where you want
(i think that C:\WINNT\Programs Files\OpenFirewall can be a good )

2) If you don' t have installed tdifw-1.4.4, do it... in the OpenFirewall folder there is
(for Windows 2000/XP ) tdifw-1.4.4\install.bat or if you have WindowsNT tdifw-1.4.4/installNT.bat

3) If you don' t have NetBeans 5.5 and JDK 1.6u1 or better, download it and install it
