Hi,
I have read a bit about a firewall called look n stop. I would like to get some opinions on it before i give it a try.
Thanks,
Esdog.

It is $40, and only a 30 day trial. We have 4 freeware, proven, firewall that will at least perform as well.

Look-n-Stop has been around for some time and is a pretty good FW, BUT,
Acklan and Xpert are on the money with what they said , L-n-S is kinda pricey
and Sygate, another "pretty good FW" is free and what I use with windows as
well. Sygate was bought by Symantec and they don't support the free ver. any
more but that's not a big problem for a firewall like it would be for your AV or
other maleware that needs constant updates.
