Although I have read the "Understanding an Using Firewalls" topic, I'm a bit unclear on whether or not I have my firewall setup correctly. I just downloaded and installed Outpost Free firewall and have not changed any of the settings from the defaults. Is this enough protection? I am easily confused when it comes to the technical stuff, so maybe a Tutorial on setting up specific firewalls would help people like myself. Any help or advice would be great and Thanks in advance! :thumbsup:
