    Firewall is first line of defense, so yes you need one.
    I'm biased towards LNS :D

    Hi Yobert,

    Yes I would recommend a firewall and if you are new to fire walls I would recommend a permit or deny based fire wall until you become familiar with rule based firewall as they can become complex in the rule making and understanding protocalls. There are just to name a few ...
    ( CrazyM and Blitzenzues ) that can help you more as they are both experts with firewalls.

    My siggestion to you to start off with would be Zone Alarm free or Sygate

    Sygate here http://smb.sygate.com/buy/download_buy.htm

    and Zone Alarm here

    Regards and good luck,
