Personal firewalls for Windows - [Comodo]

Hi !

Free firewalls outclass paid-for ones, test reveals ! Do you agree ?
That's just what John E. Dunn, from Techworld.com recently wrote
www.arnnet.com.au/index.php/id;159719021;fp;8;fpid;

As a beta-tester for Outpost firewall for a few years, I do can agree the latter has a lack of protection against leak tests.

Even before I read Mr. Dunn's review I've decided to give a try to freeware Comodo firewall (version 2.3.6.81 available from here - http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/license_registration.html
(To download software, you will have to register on their site. Activation code will be sent by e-mail)

Until then, I am fine with Comodo firewall. Just one minor inconvenience experienced: I've unintentionally blocked DNS requests sent from Firefox 2, had to turn off "Monitor DNS requests" option in Application Behaviour Analisys and then clear DNS cache with "ipconfig /flushdns"

Stay protected !

I have been using Kerio for the past few years and installed Comodo just few minutes ago after seeing this post.

It certainly looks very promising

Wow, windows firewall performed amazing on that benchmark. And they still have the balls to sell their ISA product after getting embarrassed with this test. I wonder if some anti-windows sentiments made it into the testing procedures.
