    Hello,

    I'm a confessed security addict. It is a good thing in my case since I am a consultant. For about 15 years I've tested out alot of hardware/software
    firewalls. My two favorite are Tiny Personal & Outpost. I prefer tiny a bit
    more because it allows me to control and secure my machines more. It seems
    like much for someone who installs it but once you get it configured it runs
    nicely.

    I use Kav Personal, Process Guard, Ewido and Tiny. PG and Tiny kinda over lap
    a bit. Does anyone have anything written on making Tiny more secure? I might have missed somethign =).

    Ciao

    I've been dedicated user of Tiny for over a year now .. the latest build 2005 is the best ever in my view .. stable and like you said one of the best firewalls available...

    indeed pg and tiny do overlap but you can configure it...I didn't I just leave it like that together with Regdefend...

    put your networkcard in dangerous zone for starters .... (network options) and the rest you can read here:

    Excellent posts with very experienced/helpful people ;)

    hope you can do something with it

    I wonder: is Tiny out of the box secure enough too? That's the way that I have it in any case, at the moment...

    Out of the box, tiny has enrolled some apps that access the internet into the trusted group.
    That is not a good idea. I enroll all internet apps into a special group, then i can control access to the internet and files,etc. separately.

    Oops, I also forgot, you need to watch the tiny forums.
    Inbetween builds they sometimes post new files in the forum, if you dont catch them there you wont know about them. There was a new kmx file posted last week i believe for 6.5.110.

    I think these series of Tiny Firewall 2005 are very good for starters too.
    Strong out of the box protection, it just needs study for the most.

    And don't forget.
    It is the only strong and reliable protection for gateway servers in the Windows market.
