    YOYOYO, hey i wondered if it possible or even better to have multiple active firewalls to protect your computer, right now i'm using three, NPF, ZApro and BlackIce....

    What do you think, do you have any other recommendations on firewalls???

    Using three firewall at once can lags your computer. But If you want extra protection then use all three :D
     
  3. They should in Theory all block against the same attacks, it seems pretty pointless to me.

    3 Firewall = 3 times the hassle.

    euhmm...well..which one i can use best then? i heard that norton isn't all that good because it doens't really block the ports it just camouflages it, that's what i heard, so should i use Norton, ZoneAlarmPro or BlackIce Defender, or do you have some other recommendations?
     
  5. Well personaly I use 'Sygate Personal Firewall'. Because it's good and most importantly, it's free for home use. I don't seem to get any problems at all with it. The site also has a little test section so you can test your firewalls ability to block against attacks.

    Nope...

    BlackIce is the best. I know its not free but with a little H@acQ and a little *cough* cr@ck. FREEE IS GOOD :D

  8. Owww i'm afraid the opinion of sprite drinking midgits isn't valid. Sorry about that, but it is in the terms and conditions.
