    For a free firewall it's hard to beat either Comodo or OnlineArmor...

    Have you used the newest version? It has been nothing, but smooth for most people and very light.

    It's a strong 3-way combo you have there. Filseclab's FW is quite good -- many posts here at Wilders about it. Ditto for GesWall & SSA.

    Latest version I see is v3.6 (2005). Is there a more recent one?
    Used Filseclab FW some time back, found it light and efficient.
    One thing I liked about Filseclab was it's logging: logged actions indicate which rule number determined the block or allow action taken.
    Great convenience when troubleshooting / editing rules.

    I was referring to you saying CIS is bloated.
