Unavailable Features on "free" Kerio

I downloaded Kerio firewall as an alternative to Zone Alarm, and find it much more stable and user friendly for use on wireless networks.

However, my 30 day trial of the full-blown version is due to expire in 2 days.

Wondered if it was worth purchasing the full version for good (costs $19.95), or if there is no point.

There is only one feature in the full version I use that would not be in the free version. This is:

Host-based Intrusion Prevention System

Am I likely to miss this - all of the other stuff that is missing in the free version I either did not use (Content Filtering) or apply to networks (e.g. remote admin, syslogs etc).

No you would not miss this

Use the free one

I never have, though with home networks becoming more common I can see the point for some people.

Thanks for the replies.

I will use the free one.

I am not on a home network, but am using a wireless router which has a built in firewall anyway.
