    Try using Tiny If you can configure it well.... if you want an easy to configure firewall try ZONEALARAM.

    If you're running XP with SP2, get the inbuilt firewall running NOW.
    Use it until you have chosen and installed the new version.

    To paraphrase 妯py展ght :

    It doesn't matter which one you choose - Just choose one, and use it.

    go for IPCOP as hardwarefirewall ! runs on a indipendent system . forget windows xp firewall.
    imho a hardwarefirewall is more secure than a softwarefirewall.

    well of course hardware is better, and there have been posts that the inbuilt XP firewall sucks, and is easily compromised. im still trying to find a firewall that works well with a low end windows system. it seems that a lot of companies are going for the memory hogging XP looking apps and forgetting about their friends with the old equiptment. sygate is decent, but i have had problems with it crashing....and the fact that to get it working you have to rename a file and copy it to /windows/system.

    I would like to see your research that leads you to believe the XP firewall sucks. If you ask me, Sygate is poor because they have 3 unpatched vuln's.

    Including this one:
    Sygate Personal Firewall comes with a default rule set that blocks all udp requests, however if udp requests originates from source port 137 or 138 they are allowed, thus a malicious person could get access to all open udp ports on a target merely by sending all requests from source port 137 or 138.

    I'd like you to link those for me.

    i could be wrong man. you dont have to get all mean about it, its been a few weeks and it could have been articles i read from other sites like hideaway etc etc. and no firewall is perfect i know unfortunately. but i still believe there was a post about how the XP firewall has some major issues
    that can be compromised by "hackers". but of course i cant find it now, nor am i gonna start a fight over the crappy OS to begin with
