Default Good Firewalls?

Hi everybody!

Since Sygate got gobbled up by Symantec a while back, can anyone recommened me a good free firewall that has the same or better performance to my old Sygate?

It has gotta have backtracing, advanced rules and monitoring tools such as the graphs and process/connection details...

Thanks

Well free firewalls are always the worst, buy ZoneAlarm, is the best and for security money is no wall

Try Zone Alarm. I used to use it prior to getting a hardware firewall and NAT.

There are loads, try your ISP they will have something they recommend
