Whats the best firewall? - Page 2

post #11 of 31
Software firewalls are **** - NAT offers real protection. I use Sygate to stop outgoings from phoning home. My IP is 192.369.43.67 but its dynamic so someone else might have pooled it by now - feel free to throw some uber attack at it though :lol:

Active Armour whilst functional causes many corrupt downloads specifically torrent styled downloads.

Mine's never bugged me...though I don't haev the software installed since I reformatted...so I don't think I'm running a firewall at all..unless it actually does something in hardware..*shrugs*. I have a router that handles all that crap anyways...
No firewall for me...but I do have AVG and Spybot and stuff....never had them detect anything though...

Just get a router instead. Save your system some resources.

besides dont post your computer's ip....post your router's.....192.168.1.1 is a common ip used by routers to the first availible client....btw

also hardware firewalls are way better......

EDIT: I didnt bother cause its a common IP to all networks.....Gimme a real IP address and we'll c

Software firewall = Zone Alarm Pro ( www.zonelabs.com )

Hardware Firewall = Sonicwall ( http://www.sonicwall.com/products/vpnapp.html )
post #19 of 31
ZoneAlarm. I also have a router which they tell me is overkill (software and hardware firewalls) but I'm the paranoid type.

What's the purpose of posting your router's internal IP address? It isn't visible to the outside world. No one can see it, only your computer.

I use a NAT+SPI router plus Zonelarm Security Suite. <strike>Good</strike> Rock solid security, if you want an excellent firewall, anitvirus, antispyware, osfirewall, privacy controls, IM security, and parental controls all in one.


The best combimation would be a NAT+SPI router w/ a software firewall for outbound protection. The router would stop all unsolicited traffic before it even made it to your computer.
