Might be a cool idea, but still some wrinkles to work out. It couses a "WSAENOBUF" error in my Tor server, so I uninstalled it.

Easy install. No incompatibility ( with Safety.net and Spywareblaster), no computer slowdown, seems perfect until now.

I installed it without a hitch. I haven't seen a performance drop or laggy internet which is good.

I read all the info on their website before installing to educate myself on what is being done.

The control panel is very informative and good.

I'd say, give it a try. It seems like a good layer of unique protection that is light on your system.

this should have been five stars, and i've been amazed to see it's functionality on other peoples computers, however just not on mine. it killed my internet connection after installation and ONLY an un-install of Socketshield brought my connection back up.

However no technology exists quite like this, this is how port blocking should work. once they clear up an incompatibility with Kerio/Sunbelt Personal Firewall, i'm sure i'll be back to rate it again ;)
