I might recommend Sygate personal firewall as a backup.
You can try it <http://smb.sygate.com/products/spf_standard.htm>. It's
good and clean. Business use will require a license though. And no, I'm
not getting any kickbacks for this.

To the group,
I have a colleague who has a SOHO network using ADSL. He is using a standard Linksys router for his firewall, but has reached a limit in the number of ports it can open and manage. I don't have one on hand to check, but evidently the Linksys only has ten slots to configure ports to be opened and he needs 12-15 or so.
Without a lot of money he wants to get a different firewall up and running that has more ports that it can manage.
I suggested the free version of zone alarm as the only free one I'm aware of; however it turns out that he wrote his thesis on how you can crack zone alarm.
Looking for another much more secure solution?
