great wall

Doing some pre-emptive packing, and chilling out. Back in a couple of days.

And can anyone recommend a good firewall that will allow you to run a network?

I am about to sack Zone Alarm off - it was fantastic until update six point something, which suddenly stopped allowing all the PCs networked to the PC we were using as an internet gateway to access the internet. Which is very secure, but kind of defeats the object.

  3. I am very much in favor of using a hardware firewall (aka router, gateway) rather than software. It's more effective, less intrusive, and doesn't screw up your machine's configuration. It's not hard to set up, allows you to share your internet connection with other pc's, and shouldn't cost more than 30-40 of your local currency unit. My two cents!

  5. I'd second Chris. A hardware firewall is always the better option. The less software you load on your PC the better, particularly stuff like that that plays with the root code of the operating system.

    Most broadband modems have firewall's as part of the package these days.
