    "Not able to use!"

    August 30, 2011  |   By gechodesigns


    I am an IT pro and have my network set up with more than enough rules to allow this program out. The problem doesn't lie with anyone's network. It has to do with this thing being a poorly coded piece of garbage. Do yourself a favor and don't bother!


    The whole thing is a con. If you read what you get for using it for free... They'll use your essay after a bit.


    Don't bother downloading. It doesn't work. I spent hours trying to make it work. The customer support is a joke, and the comments over there are good for a hoot.

    very small number in comparison and we are usually able to help them -
    most of the common problems are addressed on our 'contact' page on our

    As I said, thanks for your feedback but really I think your comments
    could have been more constructive.

    Kind regards
