Firewalls, what would you use? or would recommend?



Hi, im looking for a firewall for a Windows XP Professional 64-bit
computer, the computer is mainly running game servers, ventrilo
servers, that sort of stuff.

What would you use in this scenario?


I dont really have that much experience in Windows and firewalls,
purely cos i wouldnt trust one connected to net, but in this case im
forced, so any help, advice, recommendations, do and donts, would be
greatly appreciated!


Thanks in advance.
bob.
