    Holiday offer from Agnitum - Outpost Firewall Pro

    <font color=magenta>CHRISTMAS GIFT FROM AGNITUM</font color=magenta>

    With the upcoming Christmas and New Year holidays your friends at Agnitum would like to wish you and your family all the best. We are also eager to offer you something special in addition to good wishes, and that means a special "Christmas Gifts" offer.

    Anyone who purchases Outpost Firewall Pro from December 20th through January 10th will get Lifetime Upgrades, free of charge. This would save annual spending of 19.95 for future upgrades of Outpost protection.

    It is a proven fact that virtual criminals like hackers are especially active during the holidays, flooding the Net with Denial-of-Service attacks, mass-mailing worms, Trojan horse injections and malicious Web-based scripts. Don't let you or your relatives be an easy target for malicious code - protect your computer from Internet threats with the most effective protection for a Lifetime!

    To take advantage of this offer please visit this page: http://www.agnitum.com/r/news20041220/xmas/

    If you have thought about purchasing a software firewall for your PC now would be the time to follow through. If you have never considered getting a firewall, you should. :wink: A number of us here have been using Outpost Firewall Pro for a few years and after comparing it with the other choices on the market, there is little doubt that Outpost Firewall Pro excels in every area over its competition. What is additionally impressive is that not only is its primary function as a firewall superior, but the configurable Plugins, such as the Popup Blocker, Advertising blocker, Content Blocker (Parental Control), E-mail Attachment blocker and its other extras are simply great. I personally highly recommend it and encourage you to take advantage of Agnitum's holiday offer. :BigThumbUp:

    As a current user, I wonder whether there is any way to get in on those updates. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I agree that for anyone who likes to have lots of log information and the option to install plug-ins, this is an excellent product. If someone simply wants a set-it-and-forget-it kind of product, Norton Personal Firewall might be better. For someone undecided between ZoneAlarm, Sygate and Outpost, they are all worth a look.

    jscher2000,

    It's a great deal to be sure. But I doubt that current users can get in on it. <IMG SRC=http://www.the-highway.com/Smileys/sad02.gif>

    As far as your actual comments re: the firewall itself, I will have to disagree somewhat. Yes, the OPTION to "play" with customized rules and other areas of the firewall are there if one is so inclined. However, Outpost Firewall Pro is designed to run perfectly well right out of the box. The "Log Viewer" isn't something that is displayed unless the user opens it. If they don't then they are not visible and can be regarded as non-existent in that case. The Plugins are automatically installed with the main program. The user has the option to remove or just stop them if they aren't interested in them. However, the Popup Blocker and Ad Blocker are extremely functional and offer the end user the ability to add individual sites to the "Exceptions List", e.g., Windows Update, which requires ActiveX be allowed. Bottom line here is that Outpost doesn't REQUIRE one be involved with "logs", etc..... But there are myriad options for those who are more inclined to wanting "more". <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>
