Outpost Free Firewall ..............
« on: September 02, 2010, 08:15:58 PM »
Dear Forum,

I would be interested to hear your current assessment of the Outpost Free Firewall.

- Is it compatible with MBAM and Avast?
- How reliable have you found its performance?
- Is it a resource hog?

Thanks in advance!

Whilst I use the Pro version I have no problem with it and avast, not is it resource hungry.

@ DavidR: What specific advantages does the Pro version hold for you?

It is much more configurable and if you are into other modules other than a firewall it has those too, me personally I want my firewall to be just that a good firewall.

I bought the Outpost Pro version many years ago on a great lifetime license offer for the same as a 1 year license, couldn't resist. At that time I was using the outpost free firewall, that however was version 1.0 and it lagged well behind with little development. More of a hook to have you consider the paid version. It is only recently that the 6.x free version was released and it is a fine firewall.

@DavidR: I have a question.

Outpost (Free version) still in version 2009 (the latest paid version is 7), it have a behavior application protection, and my question is: This will be incompatible with avast! Behavior protection alongside ThreatFire? See my signature.

Hi, the pro version has more detailed/advanced logging than the free one.

Outpost Pro has had something akin to behaviour application monitoring for some time (pre-7.0) and I have never had a problem with it. I don't use Threatfire, I have never felt the need for it. See image for the listing of outpost pro 7.0 settings.

I think you will get more by using comodo's firewall; you get more than just a firewall

The very best advice that I can give is : try all free firewall (known ones of course).

COMODO you need a security course to use it,so if you are even a professional user may you cant deal with it.
I miss the old style firewalls.
