So what happens if you download Sygate Pro? Is there a trial period and then you have to pay Symantec some money? Or does it act like the free version and keep on running? Or does it just switch to the free version? Also, what's the difference between the free and pro version? I have heard there are some weaknesses in Sygate, could anyone explain if this is true and if there is some way to cover the weaknesses with some other program? I also have SSM so maybe that could do it? I remember in the Tiny Personal Firewall forum during the period the licenses were being dried up after the CA buyout there was a poster that listed a way to reactivate the trial version by resetting something in the firewall. Funny, it stayed up a long time as CA ignored any posts on that site. Does Sygate Pro have a similar way to reset the trial period (if there still is a trial period)? Thanks.
