    Wondering if anyone knows how to allow Box through the firewall as I have tried everything and a no go, says it may be error and to make sure the sub domains are allowed (done that) for ports 80 and 443, support says that they have done what they can, any help would be great.

    Thanks

    @Frank: Its a matter of personal preference. I know what promotion you are talking about — I posted about it at http://dottech.org/freebies/26816/free-50-gb-box-net-cloud-storage-android-device-hp-touchpad-or-blackberry-playbook-required/. I personally don’t like Box because of how you are limited to 100 MB max file size for the free version. My personal preference is Dropbox. Others may prefer Comodo. Choice is always good :-)
