    Can someone out here suggest a good firewall... which should essentially be free...

    I am using ZoneAlarm free version right now but then it is not good enough...

    If some one wants to fu** ur pc . He can do even on a firewall............

    Dennis,

    Do you use the free version or the licensed one?

    The free one that I have with me doesn't allow me to configure the ports to be kept open... I can just allow people based on a range of IP's, particular IP address, or a subnet mask and the website address... now how do I configure it to allow requests based on port no. So that I can allow requests to port 80 and block all the other ports...

    Is there any firewall similar to IPTables(it is free) that you get on linux for windows? I mean something as powerful and as configurable as IPTable for example...
