Hi all, I've been struggling with some firewalls to find the right one for me. I first used Comodo, and it was pretty good, but I noticed some slowdown in the program itself after I added a lot of rules. Maybe it's my computer, but for now I have uninstalled it. So now I've tried Jetico, however, I think I do not have enough knowledge of how the internet works to setup Jetico. With Jetico my browsers couldn't browse even though I made rules for them, and they wouldn't shut down either. So, I uninstalled it. Now, I've heard about GeSWall, but what kind of program is it (IDS/HIPS/FW)? If I understand correctly, if I want more control (limiting access to certain ports, blocking access completely etc.), I'll need a firewall with this program. Is this true? Does this program overlap with ST's HIPS or Realtime Shield feature?
