  1. Ive been a Syagte user for a long time, ive been a fan of it because it does not heavily embed itself into the system like ZAP, it doesnt interfer with pc gaming, and it is lite on resources, its advanced rules/app rules have been nice to. Now it seems Sygate may be gone forever thanks to Symantec, im not in a hurry to run out and remove a perfectally good firewall but i was wondering if Netveda would be a possible replacement for me, does it have a small foot print? How about allowing applications and creating advanced rules? How is its logging?

    I think it is a fine firewall, light, has the features you want, and does not interfere with my gaming when I do play.

    Same opinion...

    It's a very good and free firewall ;)

  5. i gave Netveda a try on a test machine today, very fast and lite, i like how i can create application rules, one thing that seemed to confuse me was that the software seems to be designed for ICS and being a gateway, i am behind a NAT and have a linux fileserver that i want to be able to access (samba), when the program opens it asks me to set which NIC is Wan and which is LAN, well i only have one Nic and i wasnt sure what to set it as. I choose WAN since i was expecting LAN to be very insecure. Did i make the right choice there?

    Also is there a way i can whitelist an Ip address/ports? I Could just set (linux) to be white listed and be able to access it fine, either that or uncheck "Block file and print services on WAN".

    I tried NetVeda for a week and I found out that it slowed down my dial-up connections after more than 30 minutes of surfing and opening several webpages. But I think it's light on resources compared to Sygate. Sygate offers a more better protections than NetVeda. :)
