Hi. It's been a while since I said much about Outpost here and various people are having problems with various firewalls, so I would like to give a little update. I say this because of posts on this board and many others. At this point in time Outpost too will cause some problems for some people, but most can be resolved. These issues are know to Agnitum and most issues have been dealt with in version 2, including fixing all known leaks. I am really looking forward to version 2 beta and it has been a long time coming, much like TDS 4. I have been reluctant to really push for people trying Outpost until version 2 is released, even though it will be a free upgrade. Having said that, I would like to say, Outpost free is still an excellent choice for people on a stand alone computer. Outpost pro will work fine for most people on small lans that do not require ICS on Win2k SP2 and SP3, and XP. There is even a workaround for that if necessary. I do not say Outpost is the best possible choice for everybody, no one firewall is. It is, however, still a firewall that should be checked out by everyone that is not happy with the firewall they currently use. Outpost version 2 will pass all known leak tests, have a new logging system, have stateful packet inspection as an option, will fully support ICS, and fix most problems that people on XP have experienced, plus a lot more. Outpost provides excellent support through emails to tech support, but mostly through the Outpost forum.
