    Hi.. all.. I am a newbie to this forums..:) I come across many firewalls (ZoneAlarm pro, Outpost Firewall Pro, Comodo Firewall, Norton Personal Firewall, Online Armor Free).. From my point of view, best paid firewall is Outpost and best free firewall is Comodo..

    Very recently i come to know about Online Armor Free.. After using it, I realized its power:D .. But I feel it lacks one main feature,:( viz Attack Detection. Do the creator have any idea of including this feature in the coming version or totally denies ito_O ..? What you feel my friends..? Is this feature is really necessary..? If so, do anyone know the softwares that detect and prevent DOS(Denial of Services) Attacks and it should be used smoothly with Online Armor Free..?

    Last someone asked about attack detection, Mike said "We plan to add some more advanced features in upcoming versions."

    Maybe Ill go post to refresh his memory.

    I think they need to create special subject on their public forum "gimme, gimme" and add there ability to vote for requsted features. Then everything goes plain simple. The more times a feature is requested the more priority it takes in "todo" list :)

    Note, that may be a significant feature. If Mike can do something with it, don't be too surprised if it only ends up in the paid version.

    Sure, some balance should be kept. But after new advanced features appear some old one can migrate to free :)

    Intrusion Detection is the basic feature for a firewall.. I wish it could be available free in the forthcoming version...

    Online Armor Free lacks control.

    Agree. And as far as I know in free it is impossible to block particular IP address even in case you know it as a source of a flood. And even having full version I think flood detector should be added to the both as a basic feature. OK. Submitting wish-request :)
