I have decided that beofre I get Broadband I shall try and figure out what sort of Security measures I can take to uphold my privacy on the net.
I am thinking of installing Protowall, but would like to know which filters I should use to prevent against the anti-P2P organisations (and so on) without removing the internets functionality (or stopping any sites from working - ie. The rest of my family use the internet and will get pissed off if they can't get onto educational sites, etc... or adverts appear with page not responding errors).
I want a light setup which dose the job without being intrusive (there must not be a speed loss).
Once Protowall has been installed, is it possible to close the Protowall program and still be able to surf the internet - so I can have it on my user area not my Dads.
Blocklist manager can import filters to Sygate Personal Firewall Pro (which I have), would this negate the need for protowall, is it better to block the things I want blocked with protowall or Sygate which one is faster/better at blocking etc...
Should I also invest in using a Proxy, what would you recommend as being fast and difficult to trace. Will they slow down my connection or stop aspects of the internet from working.
I also have a couple of questions on setting up broadband which I wonder if you would be able to answer.
People have recommended that I buy a router (when I get broadband). How do you set one up and what does it actually do.
Will I have to set the router up individually for each P2P program, Sygate Personal Firewall, Protowall, The Internet. Will it work with proxies.
Thanks for reading (and hopefully answering) my huge list of questions.
