Discussion in 'other firewalls' started by Escalader, May 3, 2009.
sorry for barking but im not amused about that issue here.
Brumm...you will always make me laugh
and that is a repectful comment!
Almost all firewalls that I have tested and used
including OA has pop-ups for rule making and adjustsments
as you go especially in a learning mode Outpost and OA are very similar in that aspect..do you not think?
Just to let everybody know, I'm taking a step back now from Firewall posts in general not just on this thread but others as well.
To be candid it has been 2-3 years of work and I need a sabbatical.
I'll read posts to continue learning and comment if there is something really interesting to comment on technically.
There are many here who know more than I do who can carry on and I hope they do.
Take care guys.
Escalader - Thanks for all your helpful posts. Hope to see you back here someday.
Have a look here for news on OP version 7.
Their development philosophy is "get it right" before release on new significant versions. I'm sure that is a goal worth reaching as a "buggy" product secures nothing except user loss of confidence. IMHO anyway.
Sorry to add to the thread but.... Do outpost pro and avast free play together nicely?
Ask at OP user forum to confirm, I'm 99.9% sure the answers is yes.
I'm using OP FW Pro 2009 along with Avast! Free V5 since V5 was released with no adverse effects from running them together.
Thanks twl845. Appreciate it!
Glad to help. I see you're using OA. Just a note, that when I switched from OA to OP my computer's response got a little better. Running Avast! along side MBAM Pro had conflicted, but is OK now. They might fight for attention though. I went back to MBAM on demand.
Thanks. I'm running OP with avast and MBAM on my wife's laptop. I'm sure if it makes any trouble I'll be the first to hear about it.
Just a reminder guys, when using multiple vendor security products, OP, Nod32, Avast, MBAM, SAS ........
1) Only one should be scanning executables in real time.
2) All should have be set to mutually exclude each other from protection by all others.
Both these guidelines are to minimize the probability of conflict. The observation that "I do it, no problem" is like high blood pressure it is real and also invisible to the "user".
