I chose hardware firewall, but in reality I am behind three firewalls.My main router has NAT firewalling,then my server acts as a firewall and my workstation uses Shorewall. Each of the pair of networked Windows stations are behind their own router and each uses ZoneAlarm. So thats nine total firewalls on my network. 4 hardware and 5 software.

I am using the one that came with my router. I know, it is not good to have only one, but it is what I have for now.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

Hello everybody,
I use Kerio free version for my firewall. I haven't had many problems with it. :thumbsup:

I use McAfee Firewall Same with McAfee Virus Scan. Spam killer and privacy service don't really interest me But I love McAfee Cause it seems to detect everything same with the firewall too. Can Anyone Agree with this statement or does anybody know any flaws. What's your opinion On McAfee SecurityCenter Anyways. (: Thank you
