For those of you who use Broadband, what TYPE of Firewall do you use?
soft and hardware firewalls together should give you the best protection setup for the home user.
linksys router and kerio 2.1.5
Currently, I'm only using a software firewall, but have been planning to buy a router for a little over a month ... I will purchase it shortly ... hopefully.
I've been using Hi speed & software fw only, ... about 2 1/2 yrs ... no trouble, protection wise ... but just want added protection. My Connection is on demand DSL, with random IP addresses.
Software only at the moment, but will consider hardware should it become necessary.
With a router the incoming log in my software firewall is always blank, so far it has not let anything it shouldnt through.
Cheap-o edition Linksys router and Sygate PF.
I voted software and hardware, feels appropriate, since I'm running a linux based internet gateway (sme server) and run Outpost on my Windows workstation. Outpost's attack detection logs remain empty. Installing a fw functon on my linux workstation seems like overkill
I voted for hard + soft. Both from AVM (Fritz) on 2Mb DSL.
d-link router + sygate pf
Outpost Pro 2.1 and Netgear router.
Linksys router and Kerio 2.15. (Proximitron Proxy also)
Hard- & software FW's: Sitecom, Kerio Winroute v6 & Kerio PF v4.0.16
Hardware = Netgear ~ Software = Sygate Pro
I have to agree with the software/hardware combination.
But would probably choose a hardware solution over a software solution if I could only choose one for a broadband connection. Mainly because it is OS-independent and because of NAT .
Hardware - MS Router MN-500
Software - NPF 2003
