    This is a great firewall and the fastest I have tested. It's nice to see well written code for a change.

    However, I can not recommend this as a product until it is easier to set it up for a home network. I would like to see a "tick this box' to allow LAN use as seen in some other firewalls.

    When this is done, I think LNS will be the first choice for those wanting a firewall that has the best speed and lowest system resource use.

    I don't have a home network as in sharing files/printer etc but my desktop and laptop do share my connection via a router.
    I am waitng for my main PC to be upgraded and hoped to purchase LnS.

    I hope the complications are just when sharing files/folders between computers as I really would like the light load of LnS compared to Outpost.
    I have no problems using my PC & LT independently on the same line with OP on both - will this be the same with LnS?

    All you have to do is download and import a small file from the LnS site. It worked flawlessly for me.

    ok. What's the link though? I saw one for Norton, but I use nod32.

    It would still be better for users to tick a box rather than go searching for a patch.

    Its under "Network, Various", called "File sharing on a local network".

    Perhaps it would be better, I agree, but this is quick and easy enough. It worked perfectly for me.
