I know the firewall subject is a well worn subject but bear with me…..
I have recently bought one of the all in one Internet Security Packages. I.E Anti virus, Firewall and Spam filter etc. Now while I am happy with its performance thus far, I am a little concerned about the Firewall’s ability.
I have run the Gibson Port Probe and it came back with Stealth Mode. Which is very good, but when I ran the Leak Test and it failed? So I set it to high security and it still failed. I also ran all the tests on the Sygate site, and it passed all them.
So what I am asking is am being too ‘picky’? If the firewall passes the port probe, is that enough to ensure my security? Should I be concerned about the Leak test failure?
What in your opinion should be my best course of action? Should I get a separate firewall and turn the other one off or stick with the one ‘built-in’ and feel safe.
