    I am having trouble finding firewall software to support my Windows 3.11 box. Can anyone help with a suggestion?

    Maybe you should use a more updated operating system. What's the system specifications?

    Snowdrift you are doing yourself a big disservice by not updating your system to at least a windows OS from at least the early 2000s, there is a firewall Kero 2.15 but that is outdated too. You might be able to google up kero 2.15 but I don't know where. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    May I ask why on earth you are using 3.11?? As for answering your question, a router is likely your best bet.

    Probably a virtual machine. I have one too. I don't bother with security software for Windows 3.11. It is probably too old to run a virus. :D

    Lol, its cool to run older versions, its not about what you should be using its about what you can get up and running. I like doing this myself and very often find myself surfing with ie4/5. Its kinda cool running older versions and not getting infected.

    New is Old, well forgotten indeed. I believe no viruses left for good older systems although there are still signatures for DOS TSR viruses within Kaspersky and DrWeb. I checked maybe a year ago. The best way to protect yourself is to use something what "doesn't fit the bad guys' brain". TSR for Win 3.1? What about Dos or CP/M :D? You certainly lose some modern features but forget about modern threats for sure... At least for a while...

    Hi, snowdrift

    Never discuss the stupid comments, especially if they come from FTT like this above as present !

    Try GNAT Box Light. It's a nice BSD-based firewall.
    GNAT Box Light is a free limited version of the full commercial GNAT
    Box firewall system. GNAT Box is a unique ICSA certified firewall that
    boots and runs entirely from a floppy diskette, (no hard disk is
    required). GNAT Box is a stand-alone system which includes its own
    OS, and runs on a dedicated system. The hardware requirements are
    minimal: 386 or better, 8MB-16MB RAM, floppy disk drive or (virtual floppy drive). Easy to configure.

    Download:
    http://www.gnatbox.com
    or
    http://www.brothersoft.com/gnat-box-light-5242.html

    If you need anti virus, F-Prot for DOS is still available and free:

    Have nice day.
