    Hi,
    I am interested to know what Firewall everyone uses?

    I use Outpost Firewall.

    What do the experts recommend?

    Thanks

    Hardware based. Most solid, secure (if configured right), doesn't eat sys resources by being installed on a machine since it can't be and highly configurable.

    I use Omniquad for WinXP and Sygate for Win2000 and ME. Sygate seems to cause errors in XP.

    Just regular 'ol Zonealarm for me. I've heard Sygate is good also, been wanting to try it. Any suggestions?
