    I don't think so. Ghostwall works with Vista but cannot filter IPV6.

    The firewall built into Vista handles IP V6 and actually allows some granularity regarding it, both on inbound and the optional outbound filtering.

    It isn't important right now. It'll be important in a few years :)

    The last version of GW is from 2005. I may be Vista compatible but there is no information about it. I think Vista FW is better than GW.
