[access-uk] Re: accessible firewall

Hi Graham,

Another one to try is Look 'n Stop, http://www.looknstop.com.  I haven't
used it personally, but GW Micro seem to rate it.

All the best

Steve

hi Chris.

I am about to try comodo now as I have seen that it gets good marks.  Most 
people are saying that Seagate personal firewall is not a good choice and 
others are saying that OutPost is too much bundled up with other security 
products.

If Comodo is accessible then I will try and let you know my findings.

Regards

Graham
