Sustainable Softworks has released IPNetRouter 1.6.2, the latest version of their Internet sharing software. The new version sports improved performance in conjunction with IPNetSentry firewall software, and also adds a new developer tool.
The software's aged filter table size has been increased from 250 to 2000. More permanent filters can be added and monitored, as well. A new button has been added to turn IPNetSentry on and off directly from within the IPNetRouter Filter Window. The Payload inspection filter action, which was added with IPNetSentry 1.3, is now properly displayed in the Filter window as well.
IPNetRouter 1.6.2 makes the DHCP Server function extensible to handle any DHCP Option, which enables developers to handle unique commands during the DHCP negotiation process.
IPNetRouter 1.6.2 is US$89 and can be downloaded from Sustainable Softworks' Web site. The new version of the software is a free upgrade to registered users.
