I would like to know which firewall members are using and why please.
Other - LnS.
Simple, plain firewall without fireworks like HIPS, very light for resources.
Also having one forces you to study about how FW works since it's rule based firewall and needs knowledge from user when it comes to create new rules
Windows built-in. Nevertheless, if I wanted a firewall with HIPS, I would go with Comodo.
Online Armor but, like any software firewall, only when used behind a hardware firewall (usually a router).
I must state that I like Outpost just as much as OA; I am using OA because it is easier to use.
Outpost when I want a FW with HIPS, otherwise Windows Firewall Control or Sphinx.
I'm going to trial Jetico pretty soon and also Comodo
All other FWs annoy the hell out of me.
Jetico v2. Was using Win7 w/advanced security for a short time but back to Jetico.
None... just a router.
Windows built in.
Re-formatted my machine, using Outpost Firewall Pro again, no more problems or bugs either.
I'm using it because of it's outstanding features and It's overall effectiveness + strength as a firewall.
I use ESET's firewall in ESS
Windows Firewall built in Windows OS.
Simple and effective - I am not worried about direct attacks.
Outpost in Bullguard Internet Security.
And I also have a licence for Outpost Firewall Pro.
I'm using the fw that is included w/ Kaspersky IS. It seems to not cause any problems and I like the extra feature of blocking banner ads.
Voted Outpost and Other.
Outpost Security Suite on my Windows installations, because I like it and have been using it for years, plus I have a lifetime license. I don't really need it, I only run Windows in a virtual machine.
Other; which basically translates for me to None. Unless you want to count by router.
I use avast! Internet Security which has a built-in firewall.
Same here, at least for the moment.
Comodo in Comodo Internet Security Premium
Windows firewall (win 7) - less is more & provides adequate inbound/outbound protection.
on Windows 8, the native firewall.
on Linux, the Firestarter gui front-end for the kernel firewall.
A good mixture of responses and its nice to see the native windows firewall is becoming more popular.
Comodo FW D+ suits my needs and tastes perfectly.
OA used to fit that bill, until I ran into problems with it and other programs I use, so I switched. Glad I did.
Router + Online Armor.
I use Online Armor Free Firewall.
I am using Comodo Firewall that comes with CIS
