Being a Kerio 2.1.x enthusiast, the news that Sunbelt (house of CounterSpy) is going to save my favorite personal firewall made me exult; however, the question is: will Sunbelt develop its product starting from the good-old 2.1.x or the very different (and-not-so-good-imho) 4.x?

 

Waiting for some more news, here's a small list of free applications you might try (unfortunately, the good Sygate has been recently discontinued by Symantec):

 

 

Kerio 2.1.5: discontinued a long time ago, but a solid community of enthusiasts at broadbandreports.com still provides support for this excellent tool; some weaknesses, but with CHX-I (packet filter) makes a great couple;

 

Netveda Safety.net Pro: really light on resources, provides some extra-features as parental control, privacy control, pictures ratings based content blocking and more;

 

Jetico Personal Firewall: light rule-based firewall;

 

Filseclab Personal Firewall: rule-based firewall;

 

Zone Alarm Free: effective, easy to use and ready to work out of the box;

 

Ghostwall: Win XP, XP-64, 2000, 2003 only; no application control;

 

CHX-I: w2k/win2003/XP, packet filter; no app control;

 

Outpost Free: no application control;

 

Useful resources:

Broadbandreports Security Forum;

Wilderssecurity;
