    Can anyone compare these two firewalls re. which is more secure, which is less intrusive, which uses less resources? Any other observations would be appreciated.

    i used both and here's my impression
    remark " here i consider only outpost 3.5 (NOT v 4.0 or version 6.0) "

    I have to agree with hany3. I don't know why, but the developers of Outpost have made the program into a bloated piece of software. I find myself having to shut down the service from time to time and it causes many timeout problems for my email program and causes a great deal of lag. I have a lifetime key for Outpost and yet I won't use it on my system because of the bugginess and lag caused from their software.

    i forgot another major difference , away from the technical points
    i 've just red a comment of "mike nash" online armor developer said that " they removed a version from the server just because they recieved 2 complaints from 2 users about some slow boot time " untill they check it up
    here i don't care about the problem
    but about the support
    he cared about 2 complaints " not 200" and considered them
    i think if they keep in such great support they will remain on top
    "not difficult to reach the top but to remain on it"
    how many products was someday on top then falled to the buttom

    OA has strong hips and anti leak protection 100%
    and despite online armor misses some features like the anti-arp and anti-spoofing and its interface is not attractive and has some little problems with gamers and somewhat affects my pc boot time "reminded me of zone alarm"
    but i think it will be sooner a perfect product just becoz they always keep in touch with their customers

    Agree with you points, OA has a great support.
    I was testing OA 2 when it was at beta step.

    I don't use it because of the lack of log report (OA generates log files in text format, no way to directly use them).

    This point apart, great piece of soft.


    ....
    just after writing this post, I opened tallemu forums, and I found :
    http://support.online-armor.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3147
    It seems there is now a log viewer. If yes, please forget my post !
    I need to test OA asap to be sure !
