Hi. We are looking at getting firewall software. We are running WinTotal, with 4 computers on the network, and a server. Any suggestions on a good firewall to invest in? Thanks.

Zone Alarm Pro has worked well for me for over a year.

Zone Alarm is a great software solution. Actually, the builtin firewall for XP isn't bad.

I recommend going hardware, maybe a linksys router with builtin firewall. For security, you can't beat hardware firewalls.... just CHANGE THE ADMIN PASSWORD! You wouldn't believe the number of people who leave the default set! :eyecrazy:

I had problems with Zone Alarm, and now have Norton. My system and software like it much better!

Norton blocks the Sub Seven Trojan horse at least 5 times a day. Scary! It shows the exact IP address of the inturder, then brings up a map of their location.....sometimes in the states, sometimes Korea, Germany and everywhere. One in the U.S. was from a University in the south.

I am using a Belkin Wireless Network with built in firewall in addition to Norton. Seems to protect me reasonably well.
