Title: Avast 5 Firewall configuration and UI
Post by: Shiki on May 22, 2010, 10:09:42 AM
Sorry for creating a new topic for this. If it already exists, just point me there and delete the topic. Thank you.

So I've got two problems:
1. The firewall configuration. Its a pain in the ***. Seriously. The GUI (see point 2) is way too slow to switch here, there, give rules for this, that, etc. Its slow and painful to configure it up. Make groups deletable (by moving all the rules out or delete them all), make the firewall config more faster. (Add hotkeys. Like alt+a = grant all, alt+d = delete, so on. Common stuff for faster work.) (I know you have to configure it up only once. But a lot of app just gets there and later its full of unused stuff, I have to clean it out to see what is really a rule.)

2. Please add a faster, maybe a native gui. Not the "disable gui effect". The gui which comes with 5 is way too slow. (Much slower when it comes to RDP connections). Is it hard to make a native gui or just a faster/plain one?

Thanks for the answers and sorry about the topic. I bought the software and its really great (seriously, good job), but these problems annoy me. Thought I can ask such things here or I don't know how to get ideas to the app. (Just write such things into the wish list topic?)
