Outpost Pro Firewall ?


Monkey Proof
 Share

Recommended Posts

i uninstalled ZoneAlarm Pro and trying out the Outpost Pro 30 day trial. i found ZoneAlarm was a little buggy and it also messed with my icons in the task tray.

so now i'm configuring my settings on Outpost and i cannot figure out how to make my ports stealth. any ideas? everything else seems easy as far as setting rules and all that, definitely easier to setup then Norton.

PC Flank did TCP Port 1 and all returned stealthed.

Shields Up and Seifried were detected as attacks and blocked.

With Attack Detection off:

Same results.

Yep, make a desktop shortcut to the uninstall file and then edit the shortcut properties to have /u after it. It will read like so:

"C:\Program Files\Agnitum\Outpost Firewall\install.exe" /u

Then, be sure to turn off your anti-virus/anti-malware (or go to safe mode) and reinstall and it should work.
