Are you guys running two firewalls with SP2. DA! I was, obviously not thinking about conflicts. With SP2 it doesn't check the outbound traffic, just the inbound! Hmmm! Which to use, my Sygate Pro or the built in firewall with SP2. Will I ran a little experiment and aimed it at the OSNN forum. With my advanced settings in Sygate Pro I was blocking about 12,000 IP's which was causing the forum pages to open up very slow here at OSNN for obvious reason. After turning off Sygate my pages and web browsing are opening up very fast. So whats the trade off here. Maybe I'll run Sygate Pro when I'm running my filesharing programs and turn it off when I'm not. ? What do you guys think. Which will you use.
