You may want to take a look at the topic just mailed out on one of the
other SecurityFocus mailing lists called Open Source Windows
Firewalls, they seem to have some very good alternatives compared to
the built in Windows firewall.

I noticed that Windows Firewall does not notify me before dynamically adding new rules to allow traffic through. 
This concerns me greatly and I am contemplating turning Windows Firewall off and relying on Zonealarm. Any comments?


Definitely man. Switch Windows firewall off. ZoneAlarm is a good
product. In my opinion you can rely on him to protect your box. M$oft
is always a bit dodgy when it comes to security.
