    Still waiting to see it myself but by now it seems our friends at Agnitum are disinterested in this feature.

    Re: Traffled Replacement?

    You're telling me. I'm going back to ZA. The AFWCORES.SYS BSOD is still with me (even after sending in tickets). I was 2.5 hours in a project yesterday and lost it all because of the AFWCORES.SYS BSOD.
    It seems I can go for days but at a critical moment my computer will crash with that error.

    The only reason I keep OP is because of the ad blocking.

    So my choices are, install a third party program to emulate TraffLed and live with the the AFWCORES.SYS BSOD or I can go back to ZA and buy Ad Muncher.

    I gotta say the latter is looking attractive.

    Well, this is the reason I am still using Outpost 4.0. Traffic LED is the most reliable traffic monitor I have ever tested for use in a security environment where my daily login is not as an Administrator.

    Well, the joke is on me, ZA removed this feature with version 10!

    What's the reason this doesn't do it for you?

    Manny, that's nowhere near what we are talking about.

    I understand that it doesn't have glowing lights but what is it that you are trying to achieve. What problem do you need to resolve with monitoring your traffic?

    one of the traffled hilites was that it showed the relative speed of the upload/download with it's realtime bars, showing slow, medium and fast in different colors. it's nice to know that your upload/download is progressing & at what relative speed. i've got a network monitor II sidebar gadget that i refer to when downloading or watching a streamed video to monitor the connection. even better as it shows the u/l-d/l speeds in a graph with the x axis as time.

    it can show a lot more info and stats, i pare it down to the bare minimum i want to see. the lan/wan and country info can also be hidden.

    sadly, not available for users of older OS's like winxp.

    Exactly. At certain times I like to be able to quickly glance at Traffic LED and see the relative speed of upload/download. The color bars make it even easier.

    It's especially invaluable during those rare, odd, but crucial debugging moments when you try to figure out "what the hell is my computer doing"? and I see the download bar is pinned. At those times I drop my connection faster than Charlie Sheen's boxers in a whorehouse

    I think I speak for everyone on this thread when I state that I don't want something "like" Traffic LED, I really want something EXACTLY LIKE Traffic LED. Thanks!

    Haven't been here in awhile. Is there a Traffic LED feature in our future?

    Alas, it appears our best efforts in this area fall on deaf ears.

    Re: Traffled Replacement?

    not on deaf ears so much as it's not worth the effort to add in for the perceived benefit for agnitum to assign it a higher priority. is it a necessity, no. is it a nicety, yes. the more people that request it to agnitum, the better the chances. so far there are not many posters here, especially if you take out mod's replies. try Agnitum Online Support Form - the squeaky wheel gets the most grease.

    the plugin api no longer exists to enable TLED to be easily integrated into outpost. blame microsoft for increasing the kernel protection in current flavours of windows that killed it.

    Eh, just checking in to see if anyone at Agnitum is taking this demand for Traffled seriously. I'm still using Outpost v4 - because.

    Sigh, I guess it's time to move on from Outpost entirely.

    Moved to outpost 4 from atguard after it died and now I don't think there are any more firewalls with things like cookie filtering, http logs and plugins. It's like all software development is going backward.

    Will have to research a great deal to see what else is out there and what is going to still be around after Windows 8.
