    Just a heads up folks.

    I recently read a review on wilders.org of the Kerio Personal Firewall and thought I'd give it a test run since, though I've been a long time user of Zone Alarm, I have had some problems with it at times.

    I installed Kerio this weekend on a NT machine and a Win98 machine which are networked with TCP/IP and NETbeui. It installs beautifully and seems less intrusive than ZA though I haven't tried uninstalling it which is a real pain with ZA. It has many easy to configure options and I liked it.

    I ran a port and IP attack from Gibson's Research site and came up clean and also downloaded Gibson's locally driven (so you can assign specific IP addresses to check) executable and also came up clean even with NETbeui.

    I thought I'd pass this info on since so many folks have trouble with the setup and uninstalls of ZA. Again, nothing really against ZA, it's been a workhorse for a long while and free so who can complain but sometimes there's a better mousetrap.

    For a FREE for personal use download go here:

    This is good news! I tried to install the new version of ZA this weekend on 2 devices, one was flawless the other simply hung at 9% no matter what I did. I will give Keiro a try!

    Thanks!

    You're Welcome. The new version of ZA is also what got me to looking for alternatives. It simply would not allow my dialup connection and IE6 to work together. Seventeen hundred re-installs of dialup adapter and IE connections and proxy's will do that to you :mad: :mad: :D

    I've never had any problems with Zonealarm, I just don't really understand firewalls.
