TEAM CANADA!!! (Firewall)



I was wondering if anybody knows anything about the XP firewall?! I'm wondering if it works or not....if i should bother getting a real firewall!?

I haven't used the XP built in firewall but from what I have picked up on this site is that it does work reasonably well. Personally, I have just purchased & installed Norton Internet Security which includes Personal Firewall. I haven't used the Internet too much since I installed it (and I am online at work at the moment) but it is doing it's job. I have had a couple of attempts to access a port and it has blocked it. Be interesting to see what other people think
if you are running a home network, does there need to be firewall protection on all systems or only the one connected directly to the internet?
If you're running you network via a router (which you probably are), then check your router's documentation since most include some sort of firewall protection. If you have an older router, check the vendors website for a firmware update that includes the firewall since most major vendors added this option with the rise in home networking over the past few months.
actually, the network is setup from the main pc to one other via a crossover cable.
Then, I believe with Internet Connection sharing, only the pc directly connected to the internet needs the firewall protection. But enabling it on both systems won't affect performance at all and is just an extra layer or protection.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
