Update on Kerio Personal Firewall

I gave it a short try. It was short. After installing it I found out that it is a 30day eval version. Evidently I'd missed that somewhere along the way when I was looking at the site. So... For a little comparison I took it and my former firewall (ZoneAlarm) to and did one of their ShieldsUp! tests. Same results for both. I had done a search on Kerio and found someone who seemed to have better success on that same test. On the default config. I didn't see any advantage to Kerio. Only one port was listed as closed and two as stealthed.

The other problem I had probably could have been resolved with more time to work on it. The firewall was blocking access from my other systems so I could do file and printer sharing. I attempted to configure it as I had ZoneAlarm but to no avail. I'll have to take a closer look when I've more time...
