Default Free Fire Wall for WinMe

I am trying to find free version of Fire Wall

Thanks for help?

If you're behind a router you probably don't need a software firewall - but
there used to be this link....
(hunts.....)
Ah!
"Sunbelt does not support this (very) old version 2.1.5 of Kerio. There are
several sites on the Net that allow its download, but these tend to change
frequently. Do a Google Search on "Kerio 2.1.5" and you'll find a few."
If you need a 'trusted source' - let me know, and I'll either put it back up
on my site, or email it to you g

Personally I feel a firewall to be unnecessary since you are behind your
Home Hub firewall. So sorry I don't have sufficient experience to recommend
a suitable free offering for Win Me but you may want to have a look at
Comodo which I think still supports Win Me. Shane, Noel or one of the other
regulars will probably be able to provide a more useful suggestion.

Even though Sygate was bought out by Symantec, the firewall is still
available at a bunch of sites. Unlike AV, as long as a firewall is doing it's
job blocking intruders to your ports, updating isn't necessary.

I checked the requirements for Comodo earlier, Mike, and it only mentioned
NT versions. Personally I'd use Kerio 2.1.5 still were I still running Me
http://www.oldversion.com/download_K...all_2.1.5.html.

According to Secunia there are one or two vulnerabilities in 2.1.5 that, of
course, are never going to be addressed now, but my own feeling is if you're
online with a 9x version today, you need to learn to type with fingers
crossed anyway.

I supposed AAH meant 'complicated' rather than 'completed' and wonder what
*that* requirement is specifically. Of course one could still get versions
of ZoneAlarm that support 9x, too, e.g. on oldversion.com, though I suspect
they are more vulnerable than Kerio 2.1.5, today. I seem to recall you had
the choice - not that I ever used it - to install ZA in a 'novice'
configuration. Otherwise both require you to allow or deny access, and both
in my experience had glitches that required 'expert'-ise to fix, though
Kerio, if the config files had been backed up, was easiest to debuggerize.
And I still have my batch that backed the config up every boot.

I'll respond to your other replies on the morrow, Mike. I've been
rearranging partitions (to put W7 back - purely out of boredom!). I
have just finished resizing and now have 14 partitions on 2 disks and as
Rosie has just announced her return, I'm going to bed!

Shane,

To be honest I actually meant to say Kerio but the name went right out of
head and I came up with Comodo instead.

I know we differ here but personally I wouldn't bother with a firewall when
running Win Me behind a NAT/SPI enabled router.

In that case I must be fairly good at it too since I'm still using it.

Kerio Personal Firewall 2.1.5 is still (as I write) available at :-
http://www.321download.com/LastFreew...keriopf215.zip

Always a good one and works fine on XP - if you feel you need it (Never
tried it beyond XP but don't see why it shouldn't work in Vista or 7)

Mart,

Besides the pedantic point that I gave a link to Kerio 2.1.5 in the post
Mike was replying to (not that there is any harm in more than one link! -
but I do also mention that according to Secunia there are a couple of
vulnerabilities in it - hardly surprising really and the point of which is
that 2.1.5 is these days an 'on your own head be it' choice - so definately
not a pedantic one), no, it doesn't work in Vista or Win7. It simply won't
install. But if you have the machine to comfortably run either of those, the
best modern freeware firewalls - Comodo and OnlineArmor - are not a problem.
And they are, of course, regularly updated but without screwing the
kit'n'kaboodle the way ZoneAlarm does.

Cheers Shane, I included the link as several of my 'older' links have either
now removed the download or the link has become dead. I only added it in
case someone looks at these posts in a future life and hopefully at least
one of the links might still work. Thanks for the update on Vista and 7 -
saves me messing about. I gave up ZA years ago due to it "screwing the
kit'n'kaboodle". It became a PITA.
