    anonymizer.com and sygate

    I was wondering what you experts make of this. At www.anonymizer.com you can test through a pull down menu "what data am i revealing right now", for a security test. I'v tried this with ZA, Sygate, and Notron-internet security 2002, all with identical results; It was able to detect my ip, my internal host name, what browser i am using as well as what plug-ins i have, and also some of the programs on my computer, and sometimes the last website i visited. What can someone do with this information. Also, the security check at symantec.com said i wasn't vulnerable to some of this information being released.


    I am currently testing different firewalls to see which one to purchase, or use free. I don't want to start a new "what is the best firewall" thread, (although browsing the other threads has provided valuable info). but i have one question about sygate and sygate pro....It is the only one that fails the downloadable leak test from ww.grc.com.Do I have a wrong setting on it?

    What version are you testing. If it ain't version 5 then I'd throw it back. As for those tests, some of their results are dubious.

    the only way to hide your ip address is to use a proxy.

    Tedob: That isn't the only way...you could use a shell, or wingate, or something similar to it.

    You should try NeoWatch also. I've heard good things about it.

    As for the other results I'll have to wait til' I get home to try that. I haven't found any test Sygate won't pass, though.

    I like NeoWatch and Wingate. Nice GUI and good results.

    It seems that everyone's missing the point? Or maybe it's just Tedbo1 and myself that are way off? A firewall won't hide your IP....




    As Tedbo1 already said....

    I have to agree with that and would recommend proxomitron, as already stated....


    Am I missing something?

    Nope. I just didn't feel like addressing that particular part of the question. That's all. Didn't miss a thing.
