I have always like Tiny.

It has a small footprint and has excellent protection.

I've heard Kerio is fairly small and works well also, but I haven'te used it.

well was looking for somthing on the free and opensouce side

ive herd of kerio also know its same comany as mcAfee bit expensive dont think much of ther histroy of crashing in with mcafee vscan and others in that line. had a personal experance with it on win 95 while teaching web publishing in 9th grade.

sounds like i may have a project to work on if i knew more about how a firewall works in detale i might try wrightg one.

Another solutions is to use an old pc and setup linux on it.

Some projects that are popular include:

http://thewall.sourceforge.net/
http://www.linuxrouter.org/
