    i'm using norton, but which one is better, and which one has the option of blocking specific ips better, like the way peerguardian blocks mpaa or watever... i was told zonealarm is easier, but which one is the best?

    And sometimes they can really save you ass.

    abu_has_the_power, get Sygate Personal Firewall, IMO its the best.

    Man, the problem with posting this question is that everyone has their own opinion. I personally prefer McAfee PERSONAL firewall, but I cannot stand McAfee Firewall, so... Personal adds a few things, and doesn't kill my internet connection

    Hmm... Perhaps you failed to read his comment about peerguardian? Look at his original post, before calling people noobs. He's looking for something in addition to PeerGuardian.

    krackhead i use sygate too, do you enter any advanced rules? I have a few i have been experimenting with. It's fun. And if you screw something up, oh well just enter "allow all" temporarily until you figure it out. I would not even consider another firewall besides sygate at the moment. The ip trace is invaluable for getting revenge on scanners and the like. Just block the whole range!

    Where to start?

    n00b, get the newest vers of kazaa lite, its got the a peerguardin thing built in and i like zone alarm, but its wat ever u like
    n00b yourself - PeerGuardian is installed into K++, but the PG-K++ module, while works in taking down connections instantly (still a problem in PG), the module only works for connections in & out of K++. If you use another P2P program as well, you'll still have to run PG or others as well otherwise you're not protected.

    Before getting into your own heated argument, why not check that out with random nut yourself?

    Firewalls are a complete pain in the ass.
    Yes they are...

    And sometimes they can really save your ass.
    That's why so many millions swear by them for internet activity (not just P2P). After you see the 50th Messenger window offering you how to make Herbal Viagra or similar, you kinda get pissed off at it. That, and many other annoying reasons.

    Nice But not everyone trusts ZDNet. Thing is that's too similar to an international CNet; and a lot of people know that site's reputation with downloads.

    krackhead i use sygate too, do you enter any advanced rules? I have a few i have been experimenting with. It's fun. And if you screw something up, oh well just enter "allow all" temporarily until you figure it out. I would not even consider another firewall besides sygate at the moment. The ip trace is invaluable for getting revenge on scanners and the like. Just block the whole range!
    That explains the strong point & downfall of Sygate; Sygate is mostly for those who want something a bit more technical than at the current other firewalls. If you've got the time & patience to custom the rules, allowing entry etc then Sygate seems to be the best option (I don't use it, but I follow recommendations). But if you're someone who just wants a great firewall with the minimum of fuss (guilty as charged ), then the best AFAIK is ZoneAlarm Pro.

    Hope that helps a bit
