    Good Evening,

    Rather than just a name and/or an opinion (I like So&So's Firewall and it has never let me down); please also provide the reasons why you would select that generation/type (Packet Filtering, Application Level, Stateful Inspection, Dynamic Packet Filtering, or Kernel Proxy) and how it has served you and your configuration. A name, lipstick and makeup doesn't make a girl - neither will pretty gifs and radio buttons make a firewall

    cheers

    PS: I do get better looking near closing time though...lol
    Connection refused, try again later.

    I believe that Kerio would be classified as an Application Level Firewall. My favorite thing about this firewall is its high configurability, even in the Free Edition. You can configure the Packet Filter to filter outgoing program access pretty finely, even down to which ports and IPs specific programs can access the internet and at which time of day they can access them. Kerio keeps a list of Trusted Areas and only allows your computer to use internet connections which you tell it are Trusted. The logging system is very detailed, I feel, and has a pretty good, readable interface, too. These are why I choose to continue using Kerio over other firewalls.
