Philip, you are nothing if not responsive, thanks for setting up the new forum so fast.
For what it's worth, I'm a BlackICE Defender user, love the program, has technical merit, etc, etc. I'll leave the details to other topics, but thanks again for doing this forum, I think it will become very active.

Thanks Steve, just trying to do my part http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif

To start the discussion, here's an email regarding BlackIce I got recently, note that it's not my opinion, I like the program myself.


" Hey, who recommended BlackICE as a good choice for a firewall? I tested that program, and that thing is evil! It did nothing to prevent netbios exposure
even when set to "paranoid" on its control panel. Its what I would classify as a misrepresentation of a firewall...

Im not yelling, just wondering why on earth its listed as a recommended firewall.

I would recommend this program for anyone,it does the job.. Kills connection to important exposed ports..Together with conseal Firewall and a little tweaking it makes for a great Wall....
Man if you don,t want to run Netbios over TCP/IP simply unbind it from your stack#@#^^

This program is geared more for the "Newbies on the Block" but still gives superior protection.............While I could get into why BlackIce is a good "WallProg" I won,t instead I,ll wait until you spend hunreds or thousand of $$$ implementing a full firewall...

Hey Ken,

You must have been really bored if you found this thread all the way back from last year http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/biggrin.gif.

Hey Prey, where were ya? I was seeing how many times the same question was asked.

Agreed, it's a firewall for newbies to protect themselves from other newbies. The problem is it gives a false sense of security.
