Free firewalls outclass paid-for ones, test reveals ! Do you agree ?
That's just what John E. Dunn, from Techworld.com recently wrote
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 22.214.171.124 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 !
