Ok it's all new to me. Looks like I have some homework to do.
75% Discount - Heimdal Pro (4 PCs)
(mentioned on the website of Heimdal)
Anyone here at Wilders still using this product by chance?
Yep (pro version) !
I am running the Pro version as well on several systems.
Yes, I have Pro on one PC and Free on another PC.
Pro version recently got a new feature, "VectorN Detection."
Pro version here.
You think it would be ok to use with EIS or would that be overkill?
I don't think that would be overkill, but rather an additional layer of defense.
I don't use EIS, though, so I can't comment on it specifically.
Gotcha. Thanks man.
yep, using it myself and the best version yet
Didn't know it was still part of your arsenal.
I persisted with Pro for some time, but I had too many issues, DNS dropouts IIRC.
Reluctant to fork out to try it again, too pricey.
I've had problems in the past, but the latest version is playing nicely. I bought when I got the family plan for $17 US. Watch for a sale.
I had problems like that back in the spring: all of a sudden, my PC running Heimdal Pro would lose Internet access.
At first I thought the NIC was acting up, but after a lot of fiddling with settings, somehow I got the idea (can't remember how) that it might be related to Heimdal. So I disabled its Traffic Filtering, changed the IPv4 DNS server in my network adapter to OpenDNS, and the problem went away.
But that's one of Heimdal's main features, so I contacted their tech support to report the issue and ask if they had any solutions. They were very helpful. They told me to put Heimdal on the Norton exclusions list; add certain IP addresses for Heimdal to the Norton Firewall; and re-enable Traffic Filtering. The problem hasn't come back.
My issues back then: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/heimdal-free-and-pro.377569/page-30#post-2597941
Agree, their support was very responsive, but they couldn't solve my problems, even when dialing in.
May try it again if I can get a deal. The last version I tried was 2.2.6, what's it at now?
Just checked -- it's at 2.2.170.
Edit: And even better, 60% off on Softpedia: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Security-Related/Heimdal-PRO.shtml
Edit 2: Anyone successfully running Heimdal Pro alongside EAM and / or Adguard (especially with WFP and Filter HTTPS network settings ticked)? I previously suspected a conflict with one or both of these ...
+1. Playing nicely, as you say, with none of my previous issues.
Well I may have to unagree. I was seeing some strange things going on. Took off Pro and they have gone.
Will have to keep an eye on it then.
Care to elaborate what 'strange things going on'?
Strange lags in internet behavior, problems with Outlook, etc.
I also have had to uninstall it. Appeared to have some confict with AppGuard, unless it was AppGuard was in 'Allow installs' mode! Adding Heimdal Pro .exes to AppGuard Power Applications didn't help.
