How do I config Outpost Firewall?
I heard that this Outpost firewall is pretty good from one of the forums here. I just installed that free version, but my problem is I don't how to configure it so that it will serve me best. If you could help me, I'd be very thankful. And try to explain as simply as possible. I still have much jargon to learn and pick up.

MyMojo, as Kadeng already pointed out, the MANUAL is a good place to start
Here's some things to get you started though:
Go to Options-->General:
1. The General Tab
Miscellaneous: check all three boxes.
2. The System Tab
UNcheck 'Allow Netbios communication'.
Don't modify the ICMP-settings.
Set the Answer type to 'Stealth'.
3. The Policy Tab
The Rules Wizard is a good mode to start with.
Go to View-->Layout, and check all boxes.

Yep, Negative has it right so far....and just a hint, in the left hand menu, right click, then go to "Layout", and make a checkmark on everything in that screen...figure it out later...
But depending on your needs, go to the "Plug-Ins Setup" menu, and figure it out...Outpost has been a sweet interface tool...
I learned how to use it by just playing with it, but for sure UNCHECK the NetBios comm. box and CHECK the 'Stealth' box...otherwise, just play with it a bit...if you share a comp/connection...the DNS Cache is very interesting, and you may be interested in how to erase it...just play around with it, that's the beauty of a friendly interface...
