Simple Firewall for DataOne Users

Hmm... The free outpost certainly lacks some features but it's good enough.Also remember that not every software of the same category have the same features. But each of them has some unique feature. It depends on the requirement, skill level and preference of a person to choose the right firewall for his own use. Isn't it ? :lol:

Hi guys, For the brief period that I had net connectivity at home. ZA posed no problem for me. It took me around 15-20 mins. Of course did download the manual as I do of most of the softwares I've . Once gone through it ZA is simple. The only thing it's supposed to be a bloatware in memory requirements.

go to http://www.firewallleaktester.com/tests.htm and see none of ur favourite firewall passes some heavy tests :p . No zonealarm,sygate or outpost pass all tests . Best ranking is with look'n'stop firewall which is a very small firewall (takes hardly 4-5 mb ram :) ).

If u want real advanced firewall then go to www.jetico.com its interface is freindly so begginers should not jump to it presently but very good for advanced users ..

This firewall passes all leak test but it isnt shown on leaktest site yet . And its a freeware too :D

every software has it's share of vulnerabilities. a successful test by one reviewer does not exactly highlight the complete picture.
