    I try it few months ago, but still needs a lot of work!!!

    It is a program that encrypt the connection between your computer and Arovax servers, and hide your IP, i.e. your IP on the net will be the same of the Arovax servers...

    I just started using it today and it seems pretty good. Where I work they recently implemented a proxy server only on port 80. I connect to the Arovax servers via port 8080 and they have no idea. The speeds are decent compared to JAP and the betas are free.

    It is quite a unique security program that is useful right? it protects us quite good right?

    the only problem is the development is slow?

    i wonder if they will speed it up? anyone member in the arovax forum and could ask that question? :rolleyes:

    They took "years" to develop some program and they never became really stable and usable, only reply the users when they want, abandon projects without any reason, and the forum are almost abandoned...

    SmartSide is a great idea for a program, but when it will be finished?
