Thread: Better programs than Sygate?

  1. #1

    Post Better programs than Sygate?

    Can anyone give me some recommendations on more robust sharing/security packages other than Sybergen Sygate? It's a pretty simple package and works great, but I'd like more options to it. (dumped my Linksys Router until they fix the corrupt packet problem).

    Also, if I have a static IP, how would I set this in Sygate? Would I set the IP through the TCP/IP settings for the NIC that connects to the DSL/Cable Modem? (Network > TCP/IP properties > IP Address tab)

    Sygate sucks. Use Winroute. Wingate sucks also, don't use it either. Winroute rocks - you won't regret it. Rock solid NAT, never crashes. My winroute firewall has been up for months.

    Hiya again Dirk,
    I checked out Winroute yesterday, and from the looks of it, it looks to be a great program. Much more configurable than Sygate.

    Question, do you have individual firewall/security packages installed for each of the computers in your home network, or do you just have Winroute taking care of all that? I'm wondering if I should install products like Secure Desktop, etc.
