"Complete trash"

January 29, 2012  |  By Laurent22300

 |  Version: Agnitum Outpost Firewall Free 2009

Pros

Didn't crash my computer when I tried to uninstall it

Cons

Detected tenth of "attacks", which were in fact uTorrent connecting to the internet and receiving normal connections. Also felt like bloatware - does too many things and nothing well.

"Well done firewall"

January 23, 2012  |  By yduuz

 |  Version: Agnitum Outpost Firewall Free 2009

Pros

Full featured firewall for free.

Cons

A bit heavy on system resources.

Summary

I've used this firewall for quite a while, with some pauses, and was always impressed by its quality. And now when it is free I have even more reasons to keep it on my PC.

"Half a star, for the marketing effort"

December 06, 2011  |  By grouchybert

 |  Version: Agnitum Outpost Firewall Free 2009

Pros

The company has a fantastic management team, who tasks employees to 5-star-spam the cnet review section despite the obvious inferiority and incredibly useless nature of their product

Cons

In addition to feeling duped with a 'free' product, the uninstall extracted a few valuable hours from my life

Summary

Don't take my word for it, go through the process for experience sake and learn something new in your life

October 09, 2011  |  By racartaga

 |  Version: Agnitum Outpost Firewall Free 2009

Pros

None that will be of use

Slowed computer to a halt. Would not uninstall even from the recovery apps. Save yourself a lot of trouble and AVOID this software.

Summary

Dangerous

"is limited to 2009 year"

September 26, 2011  |  By marcelakis

 |  Version: Agnitum Outpost Firewall Free 2009

Pros

is limited to 2009 year

Cons

is limited to 2009 year

Summary

Not worth it to use it boasts that it is free and is limited to 2009 year, possibly full of spies and antivirus is blocking stake of at startup. With him goes a computer boots, and I dropped it. It is my personal opinion.

"It's worth it."

June 02, 2011  |  By leaktester_777

 |  Version: Agnitum Outpost Firewall Free 2009

Pros

Better than ZoneAlarm piece of crap, and is quite powerful.

Cons

Not enough features in my experience. It is still good, though.

Summary

This is a pretty good firewall. If you're still using Ashampoo or ZA, then it's time to boost your network security! Get this.

"Really Irritating when it's NOT really FREE !!!!"

April 24, 2011  |  By manxe

 |  Version: Agnitum Outpost Firewall Free 2009

Pros

Just installed it, so I don't really know how well it works. It has been unobtrusive so far.

Cons

Really irritates me when a product is not free if it advertises itself as free. With some vendors, you have to read the fine print to make sure you get the free version. This is one of those vendors.

Summary

So I see a link to download this product, and it looks pretty good. Glowing reviews and FREE written all over. I go to download.cnet.com and read the reviews, becoming more impressed. Then I go back to the original link. Mistake !! This link is the vendor's site and it takes me to a page to download where the fine print says it is free FOR 30 DAYS !!

Pain getting it to run. Three boots later it is finally running without problems. I click on the icon in the System Tray and start reading about updates and configuration. There ... after I have finally got it to run ... is the statement that I only have 30 days to try the product.

Why is it these publishers( think that we, the public they depend on for good will, are EVER going to pay after being so painfully sucked in by the ruse ??!!

Now I have to uninstall it and re-install using the FREE [truly free !!] version from CNET. Help me to protest the suck job that this vendor and other like them perpetrate on the public. GIVE ME A THUMBS UP ON THIS REVIEW.

"Beats Zone Alarm Online Armor COMODO Ashampoo +Others"

April 08, 2011  |  By Gold Dust

 |  Version: Agnitum Outpost Firewall Free 2009

Pros

Passed Gibson leak test and other tests as well.

Cons

The update has an antivirus, and it's great but you can only have one antivirus program on your computer.

Summary

Passed the Gibson leak test and others as well.......beats Zone Alarm, Online Armor, COMODO, Ashampoo, and others as well, Outpost is great it passed all the tests that I thru at. I did liked COMODO but it kept shuting down and freezing my computer.

Updated on Apr 12, 2011

I read a couple of review's that said that Outpost passed the Gibson leak test...........I went and tested it myself at the website and it failed big time, so my lesson here is do not believe the reviews unless you have gone and tested it yourself. So I uninstalled Outpost and reinstalled COMODO Firewall, then I went and tested COMODO to see if it could pass the Gibson leak test and COMODO passed all the tests......and I was surprised that AVG came up in the tests as well, very good antivirus to have. And Zone Alarm and Online Armor still no good!!!

Updated on Jul 8, 2011

I retested Outpost and I really hate to say it but I was wrong Outpost really is excellent and pasted every test I put it through, so I have uninstalled COMODO Firewall and installed Agnitum Outpost Firewall.

Updated on Jul 9, 2011

Once again Outpost failed every test, Outpost could not even pass one test. COMODO Firewall reinstalled back onto my computer, then retested and PASSED EVERY TEST at the Gibson leak test website site.
COMODO Firewall Is The Best Beats Them All, Unless There Is Another Leak Test Site And A Better Firewall That I Do Not Know About.

Updated on Oct 23, 2011

COMODO Firewall started slowing down everything and even started freezing my Window files, had to uninstall it, then I install Outpost.

Updated on Dec 12, 2011

The COMODO Firewall finally got there act together and it is working great now, so I uninstalled Outpost Firewall and reinstalled COMODO Firewall. Thanks sexysadie1!

Updated on Apr 3, 2012

Comodo Firewall Slows Down The Internet & Your Computer Online & Offline, So I Installed Agnitum Outpost Firewall and Consumer Reports Gave It An Excellent Rating.

It's An Oldie, But A Goody!!!
