Good Afternoon.
I have 2 comptuers on a network. Both are running XP Pro and I was wondering what would be the best firewall to use. At the moment we are only using the XP firewall but as times are changing I would like to know how to make both these pc's more secure.. Thank you for ur time.

I use a router for that purpose and have no problems at all. A router provides a "hardware" firewall through the use of NAT (Network Address Translation).
