An important issue: Is there a real need of firewall? I have a lot of friends without firewall and they didnt ever have a problem. I am not sure if there is a real need of firewall. I think that the firewalls producing companies create fake fear of unreal threat in way that you will buy their products. I think that firewalls are the next non-existing need created by our mercantile society. But if you succeed in convncing me of the need of getting a firewall, let it be the easiest, something like "install and forget". I was using ZoneAlarm but i have problems with the instalation of the last version - i didnt manage to install it because the previous version didnt uninstall properly. So i like another firewall... I heard that Kerio 2.1.5 is a good one and now i am using it at the moment but from some posts that i read, i got the impression that the rule based firewalls are not for beginners and are hard to configurate. Tell me can i use it without configurating it? I just permit trusted applications and that's all. Many thanks in advance: Tiluid.
