    I've been trying out a few firewalls lately and finally arrived at Tiny firewall pro

    I'm looking for any getting started pointers - it looks brillant so far but a bit confusing o_O

    You also posted in Tinysoftware forum
    Have a look at following it could be a starting point.

    http://www.tinysoftware.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2124

    and take one area at a time like start with Network Security until you master it, then you could continue with IDS/IPS and next with Windows Security (sandbox)

    and have a look at the default firewall rules IMO default rules are not restrictive enough... especially the low priority rules where connections are allowed. Some of them could be more restrictive in order to secure the computer.

    Let us know how you are doing... and be aware the learning curve is steep but once you master.. TF rules them all..

    Thanks I did search the tiny forum but must have missed this post

    THanks - I like the feel of Tiny so far - seems light on the system as well not something I expected

    This is because when Kerio and Tiny were is the 2.x.x versions, they were identical firewalls. The two split because of a difference of opinion in the products. Most of the posts there are about Kerio 2.1.5 though, not the current version.
