I've been using WinXPs firewall, since I heard it's pretty damn good. Before I was a big fan of ZoneAlarm's. I installed the ZoneAlarm firewall tonight for kicks to see the amount of attempts I had on my computer. In a span of 15-20minutes, 20 attacks. Unreal. Is there any way for windows' firewall to show the attempts? I mean when these guys are tryin to "intrude" are they probing for ports? To get acces to my computer files? Or to take over the computer? Or both/everything? This is kinda freaky, I'm just considering keeping ZoneAlarm, just because I like the fact that I can actually SEE the attempts that are being blocked here.
