Wall me up!

Hi All

 

Any ideas on good firewalls?

 

I have a laptop which I roam a lot with but have only been currently using windows firewall and a copy of nod32 AV. I keep a close eye on what goes on in my pc but I should probably have a firewall, any good recommendations?

I've been using BlackICE for a few years, I find it good and intuitive with the options etc. easy to setup and all that and it works.

I used Outpost on my old computer, and found it to be quite good. Mind you, as I haven't used a firewall for the past year or two, I've no idea as to whether it's still good or not.

If you're using NOD32, which version is it? You might be able to get the package (ESS I think it's called) which includes a firewall (for free). I think that would be fine.
