    There are lots of topics here talking bout what is the best firewall or favorite firewall, but haven’t heard yet what really are they are actually using. I mean, maybe those using only free versions of firewalls will be possibly hesitant (or shy :doubt: ) to participate on that poll or topics because most of the time only “popular firewalls” are always on the list and talk about. Aside from that, also, even paid versions has its own flaws, blemishes, weaknesses, inadequacies and problems discovered as we used them day by day. :p

    Maybe my guess is right… but I could not say for sure if I am correct. :rolleyes:

    What really are you actually using, free or paid versions of firewall? :D

    Cisco router for inbound

    Tiny Personal Firewall 2005 Pro for the rest.

    Hope it will stay as good as it is, i don't have good experiences
    with products that get a new Owner.
    (CA has taken over Tinysoft)

    But perhaps in this case it doesn't go the same way as with:

    Giant Anti Spyware -> MS
    Norton Anti Virus -> Symantec
    Ghost -> Symantec ..this one needs .net and Live update now :D:mad::'(

    etc.

    NIS 2006 and yes it is excellent! {the firewall also comes with IDS, AntiVirus, AntiSpam, Privacy Control (ad and popup blocking), etc.}

    I used ZA Pro for years but didn't like the 6.x release so I changed .. haha ..

    Thanks for an interesting thread!
