I need a new firewall for my new computer. I am overwhelmed looking at these advanced firewalls like Comodo's. I've been using the outdated Sygate firewall on XP on dialup internet. Does anyone know if there are any firewalls similar to Sygate's 5.6 version? Tinywall looks similar as does Glasswire, though it's hard to tell from the screenshots.


I have used the Comodo firewall on a relative's computer and I really struggle with it.


Any suggestions?

I think the closest ones are (and I don't necessarily recommend these): Jetico Firewall, FortKnox Personal Firewall, and/or ZoneAlarm Firewall.


I remember Sygate.. Have not heard that name ever since Symantec bought them and then flushed their product. :(

Nothing wrong with Jetico. Then theres Agnitum Outpost, May not be supported anymore. and also Private Firewall. All firewalls will have a learning curve, some steeper than others.
