Free Firewall

#2
I used to use it, if you look down through my posts in the security section you will get my full view on outpost as it is now.

Version two is a long time coming to fix a mass of issues, development has been slow and there is much fustration amound the community.

Version two has entered private beta now which is nice news and so far it looks good (screen shots are in a previous post in this section, again from me)

It is a nice firewall but needs work in its current form, i look forward to the 2nd version but right now i dont rate it highly.

Kerio however i do rate and the 3rd release of kerio currently in public beta is alot improved on version 2.

Edit: Referances:

I used to use it, but I had problems where about 5 people where sending Echorequests and it caused the firewall to eat up resources and slow my PC, I have Norton Personal Firewall now

Thanks for that info. I will look at the Kerio beta. I was told that Agnitum was very user friendly, and easy to add sites to that you might want to block, like doubleclick for example

Yes it is, the ad blocking and filtering plugins are useful but cause alot of stablity issues and without a third party patch leave "[ad]" text all over the website, this was patched by a third party for those that wanted a clean view but outposts admin staff talked about legal action (how stupid is that considering they are the open architecture firewall.. oh and the fact he had not broken the law or copyright, you can find my comments on that in the thread on the OP forum, not the same username but i do stand out).

Anyway, ad blocking, leaves nasty ad text and causes alot of crashes but is supported (again third party) by Eric L Howles's AGNIS block files which are very good indeed, you can just import the blocked sites in, somethings like 2500 sites. That said so is NIS and others via ported copys.

yeah I really liked all of the features of Agnitum, but I just kept havin these Echo Requests which almost killed my PC, thats the only reason I changed.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
