It doesn’t contain any significant changes from 2. And in that time I’ve received a fairly constant flow of patches, additions, translations etc for Guarddog.
Even though I’ve been busy, it would be shame to let the work and contributions from the community be wasted. So, in the last few days I’ve finally put in the hours to gather up the material that has been sent in and turn it into a development release. With my excuses out of the way, it is time to announce The biggest visible change is the addition of the “Port reference” tab. This extra functionality was contributed by Ray Lambert.
And I polished it just a tiny little bit. There are also some extra translations contributed by numerous people. The change log is here BTW. Thanks go to everyone for their contributions and patience. Questions and bug reports can best be placed on the mailing list. It has been a long time since I’ve had enough time to individually answer and help people set up Guarddog, sorry.
Now, on to the future. Guarddog is currently based on KDE 3 and Qt 3. Although Guarddog hasn’t been updated much lately, it is certainly not ready for retirement. As a matter of fact, I’ve already got a basic read: It contains a fair few more translations and also an important change to the ICQ support. More details can be found in the change log – SBE. Thanks go to Rolf Pedersen and everyone else who has mentioned this problem. Thanks go to Gunner Poulsen.
It can be read online here. No major changes since the last development version. Look in the change log for more information about all of the changes since the 2. Now with the Plastik theme. The old screenshots look like they were from KDE 2. Sorry about that, I’ve been busy with a million other thing the last months. Gunner Poulsen has also supplied packages for Fedora Core 1, available in the download section.
It adds a couple more protocols and should also work a bit better on 2. This release adds a couple of highly requested features.

Thanks go out to all who have submitted patches and such. All I have done is collected everything, put it together and stamped my name on the lot. And yes everyone, apps.
If anyone has Guarddog packages and they are not on this page, then send me an email.
It fixes a bad bug in the RPM itself that could leave your machine unprotected. Before installing this RPM, first uninstall any previous version of Guarddog. Do not do a RPM upgrade.
Support for other distributions is likely to appear over the next few weeks. No great changes since the last development version just added an update to the Danish translation.
Major changes since 2. Thanks to Gunner Poulsen. Unless something shows up in the testing of this version, it will be renamed and become the new stable version. So if anything is guardcog or out of place, then let me know.
It contains some small bug fixes, plus French and Italian translations. I’ve also made a few remaining strings translatable. So any translators might want to check that thier. Small changes and updates to the documentation and translation. The changelog is here. If nothing shows up I’ll rename this version and release it as the new stable. If you tried installing it and got some error about blah blah guarddogg.
No major changes, a new stable firewlal. Last Tuesday some extremely uncool person hacked the server hosting this website – and probably a heap of other websites – and guarddg trashed it. I don’t have much in the way of details myself, the server is run by a 3rd party hosting company, but this site has been off the air since Tuesday, including my email too.
Anyway, we’re up on a new server now and the DNS change should be sorting itself out pretty soon too. I have no reason to believe that the attack was directed against this guardodg site and I’ve also checked the files that were restored from backup.
Everything appears to be in order. Ironically, the absence of email an mailing lists gave me some time to do some hacking of my own. Python and Qt is a match made in heaven! Some more protocols have been added, also some minor bugs have been guarddg. Guarddog’s “packet IP address to zone” matching code has been tweaked a bit.
It now uses a “best fit” approach. Added some more protocols, tweaked some others. There you can browse and search all of the previous messages.
Details in the log – SBE. No really big changes, just some more fixes. Details in the firwall. I’m going off on a longish vacation until mid-febuary This means I’ll be away from email and computers for a while. Do try the mailing list if have questions about Guarddog. I won’t be there but with a bit of luck someone on the list might be able to help you. People wanting help with using Guarddog are invited to use this list instead of emailing me directly.
It adds a bunch of new protocols thanks to those who helped with these and the possibility to specify multiple DHCP interfaces separate interface names with a comma. So please, if you are feeling brave, try it out and let me know what breaks. More detail is in the changelog. Matt also has an apt repository for RedHat 8. Girewall available for download thanks to Maciej Plewa who compilied them up. Seriously though, I just installed Mandrake 9 and am rather impressed.
I just hope that they don’t have to break binary compatibility for a long guardvog. Matthew has also set up an apt repository containing Guarddog 2. No big changes since the last release candidate.
A big thanks to everyone who has helped out with development. For those who can’t wait, the fix is quite easy. It should look like this:. Now you should be able to compile.
Sorry for the inconvenience, my KDE 2 machine is off-line at the moment which has made testing a bit tricky. There are quite a lot of bugs fixes in this release, including some important ones. See the changelog for the details. Some guarfdog for the program text have also been contributed, although right guardog they don’t appear to be working. I can’t get Guarddog to use them. This is one of the few remaining issues before 2. Is it working ok? I haven’t tested them out, but they should firewall ok.
BTW, I’ll be away on holidays next next week, so don’t expect mail replies after Friday. I assume everyone is aware of the news coverage of Guarddog over at The Dot. Everything is in the download section.
