    didnt try it...but i notice that enigmasoftwaregroup.com is listed as a 'bad' url by some hosts file sites, making me think that it could be a spying vehicle camouflaged as a firewall

    but i dont know

    I installed EnigmaFW and found it an annoying program. :doubt:
    each time I open a new tab (I use Mozilla 1.6) it askes me to allow this connection, even if I allowed it - the same program/url - before. I haven't seen such behavior form any FW (I used Tiny,Kerio,Sygate,Outpost and ZA)..
    I do not recommend using this software; I think it is not complete yet.. :(

    I installed Enigma Firewall and found it easy to set up. I ran a penetration test on it (www.grc.com) and it was weak. I uninstallled it and put Sygate back in.

    ***WARNING*** Enigma Software Group is suspected of being a spyware/malware company. There have been lots of people discussing about whether Enigma is good/bad.
    However, i strongly recommend that you don't even go to their website nor touch any of their products.

    Re: Enigma Software Group
    it depends who you ask i think :D , but they are bad news in my opinion, they are among the various companies who were trying to make a dollar off of spybot search and destroy, no thanks to google , and you need to pay for anything to be removed , even if the reports are false .. they also got blacklisted at bluetack.

    heres a bit more:

    hopefully im not alone in thinking they are not worth the trouble, and you should stick with the real anti-spyware programs like adaware and spybot S&D.

    but not this spybot ripoff either: :D

    what tahoma says seems to have a point. i like this part of his statement: spying vehicle camouflaged as a firewall.

    well said, tahoma.

    Thanks all for your replies.

    I won't be testing this firewall out anytime soon.

    There wasn't much information given out at all at their website, hence the question. Now I think i know why they don't say too much.

    I used it in twin with other firewalls, every time I tryied to change something like passwd on hotmail and similar, the enigma tryied to connect to 67.15.16.32, port 80. I suppose it is not a good thing!
