Have posted here a while back re perhaps having to eventually move from current Sygate f'wall to, likely, Agnitum's Outpost Pro or ZA Pro. In last post, I said I rather liked Sygate's style, in that I don't have to babysit it much or be overwhelmed with choices. I > want a strong sense of security < from an f'wall obviously, but don't want a headache from too many choices and end up constantly having to click yes or no or maybe... Perhaps it's a matter of my worrying about an f'wall with too many choices, & as you well know, a misconfigured anything could easily lull one into thinking that the bases are covered (when in fact, they may not be). BUT... having said that, can I again get general opinions from users of the two above apps with preferably most current versions - and tell me if you'd buy it again if you had to start over? It seems that Outpost included its Tauscan app in its Pro f'wall (and I have been using trial ver. of Tauscan, recently). Both they and ZA and most f'walls come to think of it, have seemingly thrown in an approach to "anti-everything" and have also gone to yrly. fee/charge and til now, I wouldn't have thought an f'wall needed updates - but I guess that is because the web is now the current wild, wild west (or so it would seem). Input is appreciated, as always, and again this is to seek your thoughts on the matter and by no means an invite to "who's best" flame war. Many thanks, for opinions, SG1 (Pat) =========================== Both Agnitum and ZA currently have "deals" for we Kerio or Sygate users, so I'm thinking I should buy new f'wall when the deals are on, so I can have new f'wall in reserve if my current Sygate product falls over dead, (when Symantec aka bloatware international kicks Sygate f'wall off the playing field).
