Thread: New User needs advice

    Default New User needs advice

    Hello:

    I'll start by saying that I'm a new user to the Free ZA, although I used long ago, I am returning to it with a win7 x64 machine and MSE as my AV.
    My main concern when installing a firewall (besides the "free" status) is speed.
    I use my machine a lot for gaming (lan and online) and I have a lot of multimedia that I stream to an HTPC so network speed is the MOST important thing a firewall must give me (alongside security).

    I know how to configure the windows firewall to a block all status and then create rules to allow programs as I need, but since I'm not the only one using the PC this is not an option for everyone so I must choose a firewall that will give me outbound alerts as they happen.

    How is ZA today in the speed area?

    Thanks.

    Hi; I had already read that.

    I'm wondering about ZA's performance. How good is it this days.. Is it true that 9.2 does not support IPV6 and I will not get HomeGroup on win7?

    Thanks.

    ZAFree Basic v9.2 is a very good Firewall

    Sorry, Only the Paid versions of ZA support ipv6..

    Hello,

    There will be an update in 1-2 weeks that will add IPv6 support to ZA Free.

    Cool!
    That's the news I was waiting for!

    When it is released or in beta, if it is not too much to ask, could you pm me?

    Thanks.

    Edit: if you can't PM me, where do you post new releases so I can check for myself?

    Thanks again.

    ZAFree releases are published here:
    http://www.zonealarm.com/zadownload/

    Or just wait that your ZAfree will warn you of an update (if in ZA preferences your "check fo products update" is set to automatically.

    Cheers,

    Thank You fax! Will keep an eye on this. ZA free seems to be the best choice for me.

    I noticed a new version of ZA Free, has IPv6 been added to the list of changes?
    I don't see it anywhere...
