It's good to know I wasn't the only one having trouble with this new version. I've uninstalled it, and am now trying the 'free' version of Zone Alarm. However, when I installed it yesterday, I couldn't shut down my computer until I disabled it, after which my computer shut down OK.
I used Sygate for two years up until this morning. This new Kerio version gives you a ridiculously high level of control and information about everything. I love it! I have the ability to stop programs from even running at startup, even if they re-install themselves. HAHAHAHA SCREW OFF CREATIVE LABS APPS. I WIN!
I have a Harware Firewall on my Modem/Router, and some tell me that I don't need a Software Firewall as well. However, I really cannot see how a Hardware Firewall, can protect my computer, without ever needing updates. Software Firewalls update constantly.
Yip .. A Nat Router will keep things from going in (because of the ports it blocks). But it will not keep things from going out - This is why you need a software firewall as a hardware firewall .. If you are'nt to paranoid though, a nat router is all you really need
I wish they would come out with a siftware that will allow you to adjust the setting from the built in firewall like you would any other firewall though .. Then you would have the best of both worlds .
I am sure you guys will understand the following better than me, but my Hardware Firewall is supposed to be a business class Firewall and is described as:-
True Firewall using Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and Intrusion Control features Denial of Service protection from hacker attacks, while VPN (Virtual Private Network) pass-through permits secure access to your office or corporate network and enables you to host VPN services. Content filtering lets you control access to inappropriate web sites and limit usage by time of day. Logs browsing activities and provides optional e-mail alerts so you can monitor access. DMZ support allows unrestricted access from the Internet to one computer (for hosting web services).
