    Was thinking hard on this and i thought outpost firewall is the best firewall for me.

    outpost firewall passes more leak test than zonealarm etc..

    can anyone give me the must have plugins and give me a link pls.


    with a small description thnx.

    I like my Out Post Pro I switched from ZAP during the version 5 disaster. I only have three plug-ins going:

    Attack Detection, Content and DNS Cache. The rest are stopped.

    The plug-ins I used are the ones that come with it. I do know there are others around that can be used. I have never tried any of the ones developed. I do not know of the ones you mention.

    Sorry I can not help more. I believe the ones I use would be mentioned in Out Post manual. They have a new website which I have not explored yet or I could be of a little more help.

    i am really happy with outpost.

    when i see the blocked sections it blocks alot and this is done automaticaly.


    the thing i like about outpost is that the setting are done auto and the block are done auto the only thing u have to do is allow or not to allow.


    Is this how it is? does outpost automatically put the right settings and very cleverly blocks bad stuffo_O




    now the plugins u linked me i would like BlockPost plugin-spyware blocker

    and Super Stealth.

    but when i click on the thread i can download a old version?? can anyone pls give me a link for the right one pls and thats its compatible with the latest version 2.7 thnx alot.


    BTW on the bottom right i got a question mark in a blue ball is this normal? arn't i supposed to have the outpost icon not the question mark icon.??

    Chaos after you have set up what you want in 'rules wizard' and are satisfied with that, right click on that 'icon' and select from the the options
    under 'policy' *block most
