    I'm running 32 bit Vista with NOD32 and PC-Suite firewall.

    PC-Suite isn't the most secure firewall because of leaking and I'd like to change it.
    There isn't to many firewalls that work with Vista and with NOD32 especially.
    Last time I checked ESET's own firewall wasn't too secure yet...

    What firewall could you recommend me?

    Even though I know something I'm not a master with firewalls and the other persons using the computer can't even understand what a firewall is :p
    So it would be nice to a wall you set up once and then forget...

    Have been using Outpost for 2 years 2 years ago. I quited when it became too heavy.
    Is it lighter nowadays?

    the last version of outpost ( 2008 ) is fast.
    I run NOD32 2.7 with outpost firewall 2008. Great solution. ;)

    I´m testing OP fw 2009 and it runs great here...Seems to me a great combo. With OP install you get a compatibilty prompt and after that the OP AS realtime is disabled due to ESET NOD32...Good or bad I can´t tell, I´m not the one to judge, but I´m pleased so far...

    Isn't it strange that no one has mentioned upgrading to the eSet Security Suite for a firewall?

    Perhaps not as good as the firewalls mentioned?

    For me Eset NOD32 3.0.677.0 with Agnitum Outpost 4.0.1014.7514 (596) on Windows XP SP3 works great, despite some bugs in Agnitum Firewall.

    From your question it's obvious that you pay attention on leak tests. In that case, you can try Online Armor, Outpost or Comodo and see which combination is the best for you.

    Hi,
    I'm using NOD32 v3.0.667 and Zone Alarm Pro 7 last release with no problems.
    Couple NOD32 ZAP works great !

    NOD32 3.0 and Comodo 3.0 pro is the best combo in my opinion because you don't have to manually configure this firewall for detecting certain threats (enable loopback etc).

    Online Armor (paid not free!!!) and NOD32 3.0 is a very good combo too, but you have to manual activate "intercept loopback" or similar to make your pc secure against certain threats. The free version of OA doesn't have this option and is - because of that - not a real protection against those type of threats (at least used with NOD32 3.0). You can test it with leaktest.exe.


    Greetings

    Why don't you try vista firewall control, too enhance the Vista firewall? Small, light, reliable, good in leak tests...

    I'm using the ESS and it works fine on the 2 computers that need it on it. But I'm also siting behind a Router with rule sets. So that could be a lot of why I'm pleased.

    After some testing with Outpost FW pro 2009 it turned out that downloading speed went down with occasional freezings in spite of turning off content filtering in OP...Compatibility issue with NOD32 ?

    How/where do you "manually activate 'intercept loopback" o_O? I cannot find such setting in Online Armor (pd ver) or NOD32 EAV. Please inform!
