Firewalling IPv6 on Win 2k

Recommended Posts

Looking for an adequate software firewall for IPv6 on Windows 2000 wit the MS technological preview TCPIPv6 stack.

An adequate FW would be rule-based, non obtrusive and either trap both v6 and v4 packets, or play nicely with a conventional IPv4 FW like Kerio 2.1.

Any recommendations, please ? Oh, free or very low cost would be "adequate", too ;=)

Hello!

Of the FW I've reviewed, LookandStop - not free - promises to be fully IPv6 aware, but didn't work properly in my tests :(
What version of Look'n'Stop are you testing?

New LnS 2.7 beta 1 has just been released:

IPV6: Extension headers support (in filtering rules and packet content display).

ICMPV6: for packet content display, added some new text description (for types 141 to 147)

Default rulesets are updated with IGMP, DHCPV6, and ICMPV6 rules to avoid systematic alerts in Vista/Windows7.

Application Filtering IPV6: port & IP selection through range & mask were not working properly.

You can describe the IPv6 problems in the official forum (monitored by author Frederic Gloannec):

Hello Modicr!

Thank you! There I can see a new version is forthcoming with, maybe, tuned up rules for IPv6.

We'll see.

What about the free (as beer) PFWs ?
