Firewall iP v2.0: de eerste firewall voor iOS

Firewall iP is op dit moment de enige beveiligingsapplicatie in zijn soort met geavanceerde eigenschappen zoals WhoIs informatie achterhalen.

De volgende eigenschappen maakt Firewall iP tot wat het is:

  • Blokkeer uitgaande TCP & UDP connecties naar voorkeur
  • Laat de hostnaam zien voor de connectie en WhoIs informatie
  • Blokkeer connecties van applicaties als je op het telefoon netwerk zit
  • Blokkeer providers die statistieken verzamelen
  • Blokkeer onnodige inhoud

Firewall iP is geupdate naar v2.0 en komt met een grote lijst aan veranderingen, in het Engels:

  • full IPv6 support (be advised that many Internet Service Providers don’t even support IPv6 yet, so if you aren’t able to access a IPv6 only server, it’s not FiP’s fault )
  • all new rules are being saved with date and time. Now you can look up which rules you created last
  • totally new way of showing the popup.
  • redesigned popup
  • Option to have the Deny Tab in front (Settings in the GUI)
  • a field on the PoPup which shows the url (TCP) or the data packet (UDP) (if possible)
  • if the hostname has more than 2 parts (more than, when you tap on the selector for “normal, *, and *.” you’ll be able to select parts of the hostname the rule will apply to
  • Option to Import/Export FiP settings (one file) so you can easily backup your stuff (Settings in the GUI)
  • support for port ranges
  • many other enhancements and fixes
  • GameCenter support: added support for the game center daemon (a process which runs in the background). You’ll have to REBOOT your device after installation to enable this (Saurik will fix that in a future MobileSubstrate update). IMPORTANT: because game center is actually an own progress which runs in the background and starts running when a game needs it, rules applied to the Game Center Daemon will affect all apps. You can use allow/deny (all) session to make changes for every game.

Firewall iP is beschikbaar voor $2,99 in de Cydia Store via de BigBoss repo.
