Im a long time Sygate user and intend on using it untill it does not function correctly (Ex WInxp 64 or Vista mabey) or something better comes my way. I took a look at Lock n Stops site last night and noticed it had application filtering like sygate but also has rule capability. I do like the Advanced rules section of Sygate but only have a few rules here and there, nothing too complex. My question is can i use Lock n Stop in a similar manner or is it heavily rule based? I have a NAT router for incomming so im only really interesting in monitoring out going application traffic. I also play alot of online games so that is another reason why application filtering is perfect for me, I would perfer to just set an application access rather then creating advanced rules for every game.
