    Is it possible to use two firewalls at the same time? Would this be more secure, or just acreate system nightmares?
    Thanks

    Why use 2? One should be more than enough. I personnally recommend Sygate Pro... and yes 2 firewalls installed at the same time could seriously give you a headache or two. They'll conflict no doubt.

    sygate pro is the best.

    yes you can have 2 without conflict depends on the 2 firewalls.

    having 2 firewalls is completely point less and it does not provide more protection, just have to do eveything twice for no extra protection

    Thanks folks.
    I am now using Outpost (Agnitum), but have seen that many people like Sygate. I'll give it a try.
    Cheers

    Do me a favour please and visit this page http://www.grc.com/default.htm and scroll down and find Shield's UP! and run a test on your system running the firewall you suggested above.

    Post your results here...

    I'm using Sygate Personal Firewall Pro and PeerGuardian for ultimate protection... :

    Solicited TCP Packets: RECEIVED (FAILED) As detailed in the port report below, one or more of your system's ports actively responded to our deliberate attempts to establish a connection. It is generally possible to increase your system's security by hiding it from the probes of potentially hostile hackers. Please see the details presented by the specific port links below, as well as the various resources on this site, and in our extremely helpful and active user community.



    Unsolicited Packets: PASSED No Internet packets of any sort were received from your system as a side-effect of our attempts to elicit some response from any of the ports listed above. Some questionable personal security systems expose their users by attempting to "counter-probe the prober", thus revealing themselves. But your system remained wisely silent. (Except for the fact that not all of its ports are completely stealthed as shown below.)



    Ping Echo: PASSED Your system ignored and refused to reply to repeated Pings (ICMP Echo Requests) from our server.

    Your Internet port 139 does not appear to exist!
    One or more ports on this system are operating in FULL STEALTH MODE! Standard Internet behavior requires port connection attempts to be answered with a success or refusal response. Therefore, only an attempt to connect to a nonexistent computer results in no response of either kind. But YOUR computer has DELIBERATELY CHOSEN NOT TO RESPOND (that's very cool&#33 which represents advanced computer and port stealthing capabilities. A machine configured in this fashion is well hardened to Internet NetBIOS attack and intrusion.
    Unable to connect with NetBIOS to your computer.
    All attempts to get any information from your computer have FAILED. (This is very uncommon for a Windows networking-based PC.) Relative to vulnerabilities from Windows networking, this computer appears to be VERY SECURE since it is NOT exposing ANY of its internal NetBIOS networking protocol over the Internet.
