Re: [Full-disclosure] PC Firewall Choices



Bullguard is like that too... not sure how it compares to Kapersky, but it is pretty neat IMHO.

Subject: Re: [Full-disclosure] PC Firewall Choices

I have limited experience with PC Firewalls but the nicest one I have seen is the one that comes with Kaspersky anti virus. It appeared to be very easy to configure and never seems to cause problems with legitimate applications accessing the web. I do know that it does not meet your requirements since it comes bundled with anti virus, although if I remember correctly one could pick which of their bundled components to install at install time.
