    Hi, I installed trial of Sunbelt Kerio firewall and on install I receive message like this as in the attachement. Don,t know what is this. Any help?

    I do had Jetico and ZA pro trial before that I uninstalled before this and disabled NIS firewall also. I have Roolback Rx, so I can play it easily.

    Hello,
    You say you disabled NIS - not uninstalled.
    Not good.
    If you want to install another firewall - uninstall the old one. Reboot. Install the new one.

    Can,t uninstal it as in this case I will loose my AV, IDS as well so I just disabled its firewall.

    You have been asking the same questions at the Sunbelt Kerio Forum.

    You MUST uninstall your previous firewall before installing a new one !

    Ya, thanks, I installed it now by this way. I uninstalled ZA pro due to conflict but still my browser is not accessing internet. Will uninstall Jetico now.

    How many firewalls have you installed? :eek:
    As always I uninstall any firewall prior to installing a new one.
    Installing another one while you already have one installed could
    give lots of problems.

    Conflicts, crashing, BSOD's, compromising your security and so on.
    I'm no expert, but I would never risk installing more then one.
    Just my honest opinion. ;)

    Za Pro and kerio are highly incompatible. If u have ZA Pro, and install Kerion, it will warn u about incompatibility but wil instal if u insist. But after that( even with ZA pro shutdown) Kerio will not let u open any site unless u disable it. However ZA Pro will work( with Kerio disabled but reverse will not ahppen).

    If u have Kerio installed, U can,t install ZA Pro( error and stop process).

    Jetico and kerio can be installed together but they will behave in the same way as ZA and Kerio do.

    Soooooooo, now i have uninstalled ZA Pro and Jetico and jsut using trial of kerio in advanced mode. It,s working. BTW NIS firewall is disabled and has no compatibility issue with any of these or any other product until now, infact whole of NIS is compatible with so many security applications I have tried so far that it,s really surprising.

    If I were you I would open Intrusion Detection, uncheck Autoblock, then turn off the Intrusion Detection Module. You shouldn't have Norton stuff like this running if you are using another firewall. If you still like Kerio and Norton when you are renewing AV, you should buy NAV rather than NIS.

    Even if you have the NIS firewall disabled, drivers are still loaded and and can cause conflicts, even unseen ones, with other firewall drivers. As others have mentioned, it's best and imperative to uninstall all previous firewalls before installing a new one. Else it's hard to tell what's going on. It could even cause strange behaviors in the newly installed firewall. What you're doing is not advisable at all..
