Sandra,
The position as I understand it is that the XP firewall only monitors
incoming traffic. Sygate (and other firewalls)are bi-directional. For that
reason I use the free Sygate in addition to the XP firewall. It is easy to
configure and I have had no conflicts between it and the XP one.


Interesting that you are considering NOD32.  The only thing stopping
me switching to it is the prospect of getting Norton completely off the
system.  I tried NOD32 on a spare machine for 30 days and was very
impressed.

(I have just been reading a recent short article on the virtues of NOD32
copied on another list.  If you would like to read it, contact me off list
and I will send you a copy).

Hi everyone,
I'm thinking of trying out Nod32 anti-virus but before I do, I'll have to
remove Mcafee from my system.  I'm currently using Mcafee anti-virus and
personal firewall.  Is the integrated XP firewall good enough to protect
my
computer on its own with Nod32, or do people recommend I should get
another
firewall such as Sygate?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Cheers,
