    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.
