I've got a home router, and it's got a built in firewall. Firewalls in the past have never detected any incoming event, because of the router. So, I need to find a firewall, preferably with a small footprint for outgoing protection only. Anyone know of anything like this? I haven't found anything on google or searching here.

Maybe someone knows of a firewall where I could just turn off the incoming protection. . .Which performs well?



Thanks in advance!

For XP I prefer the last freeware version of the Sygate Personal Firewall ( http://www.321download.com/LastFreeware/pa...onal%20Firewall )

Haven't found anything that I like for Vista
