    Hi all

    In France (and surely in other countries), NOD can be found bundeld with Agnitum Outpost 3.5 ( http://www.eset-nod32.fr/nod32_versions_pack-protection-totale.html ) which is a very good team, I think

    I know that rumors are talking about a NOD security suite (NOD v3 + firewall)

    What do you think about this bundle ? Would you like independant and specialized products bundeld together than a self developped firewall by ESET ?

    Hello, I prefer to use an older version of Zone Alarm, so that is problem No.1.
    It would be a difficult proposal to get around as everyone has their own version of firewall. :)

    I don't like OutPost. Last time I used it, too many fn prompts. Like 20 prompts an hour. I'm happy multi-layered using GhostWall as my pf. And NOD32 as my AV. Plus other apps & hardening tools. Same with Jetico pf, too many prompts.

    hi zapjb

    I didn't know ghostwall at all ... it looks fine (and it is free :) ) but can not be compared to an outpost or equal. Both doesn't provide same protection level ...

    for ex. ghostwall doesn't provide "application control" (Jason RO's topic : https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=98507&highlight=ghostwall )

    regarding outpost's many prompts you talked about, I think it comes from "components control" which you can adjust in the settings

    I dont mind OP with NOD32 - as long as it doesnt install unless I choose it. Been there done that (Outpost)
    I am perfectly happy with my current firewall. In a perfect world Eset could have two versions of NOD32, with and without a firewall.

    You mean the suite & antivirus? Guess you gotta stay tuned for NOD32 v3 then :)

    the prompts from Outpost at 1st sisn't bother me but after awhile it gets old & OP 3.5 has many problems so I don't see this as a good fit, maybe Look,n,Stop, low mem footprint...rules stick...

    Same here. I'll settle for the AV and choose my other security apps myself.
    Good thing they are making an AV and a suite :)

    vince35 as my op states I use other security apps as well. If I wanted app control from a pf I'd use Sygate (still copies around), LnS Or SunBelt Kerio. Until OutPost fixes the constant prompting it's aggravating.

    I sure hope they don't bundle NOD32 with Outpost. That would pretty much make the package useless for people that aren't computer savvy.

    It is my experience that Outpost is far too complex of a firewall for your average person. I tried using Outpost and was overwhelmed. I now use Zone Alarm Free.

    It will be interesting to see what route Nod goes with V3.

    I hope they make their own firewall and turns out to be every bit as good as Nod.

    Agreed!

    Definitely don't want NOD32 bundled with some outside applications. Especially ones that are definitely bloatware and resource hogs.

    Right now I use Lock 'n' Stop as my firewall. before I was using Sygate. Something like a more user friendly (but still powerful) version of Lock 'n' Stop as an addition to NOD32 would be nice.

    I would something like GhostWall. But with app control.
