    What firewall do you use and why?
    I heard the best ones are either your router or ones that you setup on your own. Like using windows firewall and configure it to your liking. The problem is i have no idea how to configure it.

    My router is my firewall. Back when I used a direct connection, I ran Outpost. Great piece of software.

    I only had to disable detection for the "short fragments" attack as that caused a lot of false positives.

    Also which ports to close.
    Everything but the ones you're using.
