TOPIC: Was using pktfilter, want new soft fw because esbot

Was using pktfilter, want new soft fw because esbot 11 years 2 months ago #10290

got through. My guess is that the few seconds upon boot when it wasn't loaded is when it got through.

So preferably something that
-isn't just an interface to the windows firewall and is active right away.

-easy admining (ie text based file to change rules, stop/start and scriptable, deny in/out via ip)
*basically will deny all and only allow a few ports to my servers.

-and not visible to user


I'm going to start reading through this
osswin.sourceforge.net/#firewall

And on my list to review/re-review are zonealarm,kerio,sygate.

Appreciate any suggestions.

A hardware firewall might be an option if
a) It was cheap
b) It was powered by the PC, so a reboot/reset would also reset it and help in alleviating any freezing or gone wacky problems.
*I had looked at a good one a year or two ago and they were a bit to pricey at the time but pretty cool.


fyi,
Machines are pretty locked down and only one application runs.
They don't use email/IE/internet. So from the shooting themselves in the foot department they are pretty safe. Mainly network probes I'm worried about.
