Ok so after much research and trialing several of the most popular firewalls (ZA, Sygate, Outpost, Kerio and LnS) I have finally narrowed it down to two, Kerio 2.1.5 with BZ’s rule set or Look and Stop. Both of these firewalls meet my demands which are that the firewall must be light, offer good protection and have no extra things attached to it, just a simple firewall and nothing else. Both of these firewalls are very light and one can tell that they are simple by taking a look at their program file folders, Kerio’s was only about 2 Mb’s and LnS’s was under 1 Mb. The advantages I see LnS having over Kerio are that the interface is a bit nicer and more user friendly and it is still being supported and even has its own forum right here on Wilders. The advantage of Kerio is obvious, it is free. But $40 is not a big price for me to pay for an unlimited license on a firewall. Basically the deciding factor on which I choose is based on ease of use and setup. I am not really confidant with rule making. So is LnS pretty secure right out of the box, maybe needing an advanced rule set that is posted somewhere to make it even better? I understand that the default rule set that comes with Kerio is not that great, so I was planning on replacing it with BZ’s, but after that I did not want to mess around with creating additional rules to make it safe. Which firewall do you think I would be better off with? Thanks.
