    there are difrnt kinds of "firewall" dude.

    some are big, PC sized machines, some are 5-20mb programs and the others are 500kb programs. v usually deal with the second type.

    the first type are know as hardware firewalls. These are grat big hefty things which have ROMS inside dedicated to sifting though network traffic, and stopping anything that could be nasty from entering the rest of the network.

    the 2nd kind aresoftware dynamic firewalls. they are the best and cheapest method for keeping unwanted nasties out of your pc. BlackICE, ZoneAlarm, Sygate are considered some of the finest in this category.

    the third r poorly formed port blockers. not of much use.

    as mentioned above for more details on the za fw go to www.zonelabs.com u will get all info there.
