Here is the official announcement
the help fle on the driver install is located atSup peeps,
We have now released ProtoWall to the Public,it is a app that works like
peerguardian,but it will block tcp-ip/udp/igmp/icmp and raw ip packets.
the app will only install on windows xp,windows 2000 and windows server 2003
because it is useing a driver that will only install on these systems.
this is not ment to hurt peerguardian in anyway,Dudez just made this app to help
out with the memory issues that peerguardian is haveing.
enjoy and if there are any problems with it post it in the tech support section
of the protowall forums
and the app can be downloaded at
This app uses much less resources than PG. CPU stays around 3-4% on my machine and mem usage averages between one and two megs and i have had it running for a day an a half straight with no problems. I would recommend giving the app a try.
Also, the Blocklist Manager has reached beta and is great if you want to get a more complete and up to date blocklist than peerguardian offers.
