"Great firewall."

May 30, 2006  |  By azuldul

 |  Version: NetVeda Safety.Net 3.61

Pros

Overall this is a solid firewall. Easy to install and un-install. Some nice features include picture filtering, hiding the computer on the internet, among other's. The picture filtering contains quite a large array. When this firewall blocks a port scan it gives a quick pop up telling you when an attempt to hack your computer has been blocked. Unlock sygate or other firewalls, this does not give you either loads of pop ups telling you what it has blocked nor does it make using it very difficult. The configuration of the firewall might seem quite long at first, but as it is being configured it does not take long nor is it very difficult.

Cons

Rarley ever updates, the last update was a year ago.

"dependable but not user friendly"

May 19, 2006  |  By thatbeccagirl

 |  Version: NetVeda Safety.Net 3.61

Pros

i've used this firewall for a while now and there have been no major breaches in security. it has been very dependable in the long run and i don't discourage anyone from downloading it.

Cons

unfortunately its a little primitive. it feels like you're back in the 90's. and this program is NOT user friendly. i had no trouble with it, but my parents have been battling it for a long time and i finally decided to find an alternative. i am currently downloading Comodo, which looks very promising. i would recommend you check that out before downloading this.

"EXCELLENT!!"

April 25, 2006  |  By eagle2004dw

 |  Version: NetVeda Safety.Net 3.61

Pros

better than zone alarm too much stuff from this. I was reading reviews, i agreed about it is very simple to use. not hard to setup or configure. I test my internet to make sure it is still working, but notiiced asking alot request once i start up

it is very clear to use. will ask you if you want to allow or not allow.

this is free firewall i ever had.

Yup I suggest you get it also if you want it free.

"great program"

April 22, 2006  |  By bigtim91

 |  Version: NetVeda Safety.Net 3.61

Pros

Its been two weeks since i downloaded this program and i have to say it works. One thing i like is the content flitering.

Cons

the only thing that might be a problem is the fact a little window comes up for every little program that wants to access the internet but thats in most firewalls

"One of the best FREE firewalls you will find"

April 09, 2006  |  By kidcougar

 |  Version: NetVeda Safety.Net 3.61

Pros

This program deserves to be more well-known. It's not a resource hog. It has many options for securing your network such as time limits and porn blocking to name just a couple. Once you have it configured, you will feel secure that no unwanted internet or network traffic will get through without your permission.

Cons

A little complicated in the beginning. However, don't get discouraged, take the time to learn the product. Free firewalls do not get much better than this.

"good firewall, if you are experienced"

March 29, 2006  |  By musikid2480

 |  Version: NetVeda Safety.Net 3.61

Pros

Great, solid Firewall, had no problems with it, and it even blocked banner ads (hidden in the settings)

Cons

It worked for me until it caused some problems, it is aggressive, and it is meant for a gateway computer on your network (computer that provides internet access to your network) and one day came where it just locked everything up, so i bagged it and got the free version of zone alarm, read my review for that.

"I'm impressed, ranks right up there with Zone Alarm."

March 06, 2006  |  By Smoaky

 |  Version: NetVeda Safety.Net 3.61

Pros

This is a GREAT firewall for all you out there with your PC's on a network.It installs easily and is designed to start working as soon as it is downloaded!!. The interface is geared to the more experienced PC user, although the novice can easily figure out what needs to be done using the detailed help contents.This great firewall is designed to protect all your comps on a network from hackers,worms etc.

The extensive options used to customize almost every aspect of the program make this a solid choice for an air-tight firewall to keep your PC's safe and secure.

Cons

The interface is not too user friendly & could be a little more easy to understand for the novice.It will take you a while to discover all the options and to navigate around the program, but this is really not a con...just an opinion.
