    Don't waste your money on firewall! Windows XP comes with an embedded firewall, which works extremely well. Activate it in control panel>security center. This will save you a lot of hard earned money!



    P.S Donate some of the money you save to Genesis!

    Yeah, don't buy any firewall programs, just activate the windows XP one.

    Although I agree that XP firewall works well, I personally have full hardware firewall that I use.

    Purchased firewalls are better for server usage (i.e Genny's case), but I don't run a server so I use the free firewall

    Well I don't run a commercial server, the server this site is running on is hosted remotely. I still have a couple of servers at home but for own usage. Still hardware firewall is the best way but not all want the hassle of it.

    No it's not, read the second topic I made in the security forum. The firewalls will contradict each other.
