    I thought I had narrowed down my FW choice to either Netveda or Outpost, but......

    It seems that support on the forums for Netveda is practically non existent. I just know I will need support :oops:

    Seems Outpost has isssues with AMD64 chips and some had problems allowing access to online gaming

    Unless any have anything to offer I guess I trawl Widlers posts for more info

    The latest 2.6 build includes a fix correcting previous problems with UDP traffic (which was affecting online gaming). The only AMD64 issue I have heard of though was XP SP2's Data Execution Protection feature (using the NX-bit feature on these processors) which should have been addressed with Outpost 2.5 (see Windows XP SP2 and Outpost).

    Try a free solution first. In this case, Netveda. Why pay money if you can get it for free?

    There are some good freebies apart from NetVeda including Jetico, Kerio 2.15+BZ rules, ZA free, Sygate Free and others.

    I tried LnS and quite liked it but I could not get it to connect to my other PC. D/l all the appropriate rules but made no difference. Maybe it is because I use NetBios to connect to the other. The other f/w's I tried had no problem with it and before I used a f/w router it was always stealthed from the 'net. It have good dll detection which I have not noticed in other f/w. I thought it was in Netvada but could not find it.

    I do think LnS should be more generous with licences for home users with more that one computer, rather like BoClean and PG do.

    umm..
    read the other threads on NetVeda... if you spell it wrong, less number of search results will come [and they'll mainly be my early posts]

    Config has been posted WITH screenshots by myself, 'Just Wondering' {guest} was the first to put it.

    That is what I thought it was, but I checked and unchecked and it made no difference. As I mentioned elsewhere I could remove an app from the approved list and it would still be allowed access.

    To block dll, you have to untick the learning mode, that locks up the existing trusted components. Also make sure that you have enabled NetVeda, it is confusing as the icon is not very clear.
