I agree, Eset does have very good protection, just not when it comes to an advanced firewall. I tried it about 2 months ago and it was Eset Smart Security 4.0.

I've tried a few, including McAfee, Eset and a few others. They seem to have basic firewalls unlike actual standalone programs like ZoneAlarm.

I'm using McAfee Desktop FireWall 8.5 for Years, without any problems.

FYI, very, very old version.  ;)


I am tested Eset smart security trial with firewall, antispyware and antivirus.Firewall may not have many options as a standalone Firewalls, but in combination with other parts of ESS is very good protection.Thats my experience.

Which ESET version did you try and when??



Don' know why but from some reason I don't like NOD.  :-\

I was last time use (better say try) them before 2-3 years.

As I said, this is one very old version from 2003.  ;D

I've looked at the features of ZoneAlarm and Comodo, they both are great firewalls. I would go for ZoneAlarm Pro :thumbsup:. It has just the right features I was looking for, plus other ones. Comodo is almost as good but it doesn't have the extra features like what ZoneAlarm Pro has, but it is free ;).
I've heard a lot of good stories about Sygate Personal Firewall, but I haven't tried it myself. Has anyone else here tried it before?

Good choice.  :thumbsup:

Nope, I'm not.  :-\

But it's look like there is no more Sygate  ;) :

Once upon a time I tried seagate firewall and it was very good but it does not exist anymore, as Samker note.
