Re: Firewall in XP
- Disable the XP firewall after you get another product such as ZoneAlarm
Pro. The XP firewall only monitors inbound traffic, not outbound. And, if
you have a small network with another PC in your home/office you cannot
share printers with the XP firewall activated. You would also be wise to
invest in a hardware router which installs between your cable modem and
your PC. The router provides you with a hardware firewall and makes your PC
totally invisible to the outside world.
