Firewall Advisor description
Firewall Advisor lets you view, analyze and react to access attempts detected by your firewall. Essential for understanding the ever-increasing access attempts from the internet. Provides advice and helps you take action to combat access attempts.

Firewall Advisor is particularly important if you're using the firewall built into Tiger, due to that firewall's limitations:
<li> View the firewall's log in non-cryptic form.
<li> The firewall does not log successful access attempts to your Mac. Use Who's There? to notice and analyze critical attacks based on other data.
<li> Prevent firewall log data from being reset every week.

<li> Advanced Access History window displaying all logged access attempts and including security risk level and host name of -the accessor.
<li> Windows summarizing access attempts by service type and accessor IP address.
<li> Built-in information about the most common attacks and their applicability to the specific Mac OS environment under which Who's There? is running.
<li> Automated "Whois" lookup to determine details of the accessor's network, including administrator name, address, phone number and email.
<li> Automated drafting of an email that can be used to notify the administrator of the access attempt and provide the administrator with details that may be useful in tracking the attempt.

Supported firewalls:
<li> Open Door's DoorStop X Firewall.
<li> Symantec's Norton Personal Firewall for Macintosh, the firewall built into Mac OS X Server, the Brickhouse shareware firewall, and any other firewall that uses Mac OS X's built-in firewall logging capabilities.

<strong>Limitations:</strong> Demo is fully functional and will run for 10 days.

New in this version:
Support for Open Door's new DoorStop X Firewall.
Critical support for Tiger's "built-in" firewall.
Dozens of new and updated service definitions.
No longer runs Terminal to authorize log file creation.
Bug fixes.

OS X 10.2.8 through OS X 10.4
