The skinny on ZA is that it DOES its job but with fewer "alerts" (most of
which in the case of BlackICE are reporting non-events anyway. Who cares if
you're being "scanned"? Is the guy trying to initiate a connection or not?
That's the SIGNIFICANT stuff you want to know about).
I must admit for my money now, I'm pretty happy with the router. I still
have BlackICE up so that I can monitor what's happening...And guess what?
Even squeamish ol' BlackICE has been SO QUIET since the router went up!
