Over the years I have become addicted to trying different software packages and also some Beta testing along the way but things are changing fast years ago you could use separate AV and Firewall flavors that provided good features, one of which was a backtrace facility, you could check out where shit was coming from.....now with the security firms compressing both AV and Firewall products into the same box that control panels are getting less and less hands on firewall options......

It all started going in the wrong direction when Norton bought out the business behind the excellent  SYGATE Pro then promptly shut it down! It was far better that the Norton Firewall by miles so they killed the competition.....

 

Its now getting to the stage where a firewall is just something thats printed on the security suite box, just chugging away in the background and every now and then up comes a pop up asking do I want to allow such and such, now with back trace I could make a decision.....

 

more to come.....
