Which firewall do you recomend?

Post by KliK » Tue Sep 18, 2007 7:38 am

- Windows SP2 firewall
- Norton Security firewall
- ZoneAlarm Security Suite

curentlly i'm using the ZASS 7,0...but i'm not too happy with it...it slows the compueter often & sometimes don't boot well...

so here is my topic...what to put for the security issue?

also note that with ADSL line my computers are 24/7 ON and on internet...

So far, in the last year or so I have been using XP's built in firewall. No intrusions that Im aware of.

Seems like hacking someone is related to personal feelings no more then it used to be. If you have enimies...make sure your trusted peeps don't give up your passwords.
There are *almost* no bad BP6s. There are mostly bad caps.

No BP6s remaining
Athlon 2800
Sempron 2000
ViaCPU laptop with Vista.(Works great after bumping ram to 2Gig)
P-III 850@100

i'd stay on the zone alarm
as it monitors your outbound traffic too

Are you serious?

If you are, then I think you are setting yourself up for a bug bump. It is a whole world more complicated than that.

I can't be bothered to go into it now, but I'd advise anyone to ignore what was written above.
Like BP6.com? Not a member?
Then why the hell not? It's great!

program control has got to be on your high list of things that need to be done.
