    Thumbs up

    Sygate's an ok firewall. Easy to configure and easy to maintain after it's learning curve.
    If you are behind a hardware firewall it should only go for outgoings but that's important.

    The other alternative is OutPost. Hayc59 has some experience with that one.

    I have tried sygate pro. thought it was pretty good except that it would cause an error and shut down 5 out of 10 times when i started my puter. i ran it on xp pro just to let ya know. like i said though, it seemed to be really good just not stable enough for me to keep it. but hey, it is free or you can get the pro for 30 days to try.

    Did you have XP's (?)firewall(?) running as well?
    If you did, that could have been the cause.

    Check Sygate forum at http://forums.sygatetech.com/

    You will read some sad stories there.
    Possibly they released SPF PRO 5 too early.
