    Hello,

    For those running ICF or WF (firewall in WinXPS2) , a firewall filtering only out traffic by applications. (but not by ports)

    I just tested it a few minutes 2 weeks ago. Simple and easy but no possibility of filtering by port. I don't think it can prevent maskerading.

    I would say it's a step for newbies to understand how a FW works before installing a more sophisticate one ;)

    Rgds,

    Thanks for the info.

    What is the best firewall for a newbie? One that protects, but with a very simple GUI...
