    I see that GeSWall automatically sets a more comprehensive list of programmes as untrusted when compared with Defensewall's list.

    I'm using Defensewall - do I need to add the GeSWall lised apps to Defensewall's untrusted processes or would that be over-protective?

    Please explain any comments.

    Thanks,
    Ian

    Iangh,

    At home we run GesWall Pro and DefenseWall on different systems. I should only add programs that you use which fall in the groups:
    - web browser
    - e-mails and news
    - Chat Messengers
    - P2P
    - IRC (Internet Relay Chat)

    Due to its simplicity and the rather square (but hacker/brilliant like) idea's of its developer (Ilya) I have used DefenseWall to test the effectiveness of just an anti-executable (SSM) and sandbox with different kinds of threats.

    GeSWall (Brian) has a more architectural approach, trying to build on what is already there (Microsofy Management Console).

    Both have uncredible user support eagerness. When I would have bought only one of the two, I would have been a 'fan' of that product, because I could not imagine to get the same service from its direct competitor.

    Thanks, Kees

    I agree Ilya's support is impressive.

    I'm not qualified to judge his brilliance although I would bet he has a brain the size of a planet!

    Yep,

    But it is hard to imagine that Brian's (of GeSWall) user support is as impressive. It really is a pitty that the 'sandbox' market is not picked up by the general market of XP home users.

    Yes, current beta version is Vista x32 compatible. Coming soon RC1 is even more compatible with it...
    No, there should be no conflicts with this security setup.
