I have Sygate Pro, latest build. Prior to getting it, I tried Outpost and ZoneAlarm. Now, *sigh* all the talk here about Outpost has me interested again -- at least in the free edition. Last time I tried it, I found it took more configuration time and with my wife, ummm, 'asking' me to hurry up so she could get online, I didn't have that time. Our computers are on a direct network through mine, with xp. She has 98se. Question: Can Outpost be downloaded and then disabled until I have the time to configure it, when *ahem* I'm alone and have the time. I noticed something on the Outpost page about it not compatible with ICS. Has that been solved? Finally, with Sygate AND ICS, can Outpost be run concurrently with them? Before you ask why I would want three firewalls running on a two computer network, I don't know. I like playing with software and figuring things out. Usually, I end up causing more trouble than it's worth, but it's an obsession. Lately, firewalls and browsers are my thing. Now, with the Boss hooked to my machine, I can't afford to have down time.
