    Both are out of the question. ZA and Kerio are incompatible with server OS such as Windows 2000 Server. These firewalls were build for desktop Windows OS and therefore one will find security and configurations lacking if they are installed on a server OS.

    ZA Pro system requirements (at the bottom of page):

    Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall System Requirements (it mentions for Kerio Firewall 4 but also applies to Kerio 2.1.5 in the Win 2000/2003 Server aspect):

    If you want to get a firewall for Win 2000 Server, you will need to get their enterprise/corporate firewalls.
