    Attached are 3 jpg's I have set up for this FW on trial.

    I am particularly interested in any loose green always accept permissions you may see. Windows programs were from imported common setting the vendor provided me. If you see a flaw please provide me with the reason for your changes:D

    This is an open thread from my point of view but I won't participate in vendor bashing. I know there are other good FW's so this is a continuation of the ZA Pro learning thread which after 200 posts I'm taking a break from. This tool is simpler and a less controversial vendor which IMHO impends learning.

    My main goal is control of outbound packets which have no business leaving our PC's.

    Hello Escalader,

    I see you are continuing your search for a better firewall. A noble quest indeed! :cool:

    I took a look at Webroot DTFW awhile back to see if I could find any info. I think I saw some really old post on this forum (or possibly another I can't remember). Web searches revealed some problem or another that I think was subsequently fixed. But basically I couldn't find much about the current state of the software. I couldn't find any reviews or leak test results or anything else. I couldn't even figure out how old the current build is. Maybe someone on this forum has some experience or insight...

    Best of Luck.

    Hello Escalader

    There is this review of the webroot fw at the pcflank site


    http://www.pcflank.com/art56_1.htm

    You may have trouble getting to the pcflank site if the antispy in the ZA is enabled- it blocks that site.

    Thank's Oldshep:
    Yes, the search continues. I have seen hundreds of posts on the various ZA threads here, many quite heated. It's hard to learn in the middle of a flaming post war. (that may have been the goal of the HJ'ers)

    But after 200 posts or so enough is enough. I now know how to optimize ZA Pro's settings through program settings and for members who want my help on that all they have to do is PM me. On open posts it just attracts a swarm of HJ's.

    By the way, contact me and let me know what your own FW state is, if you have time!
