Multiple Firewalls

  10x 15:03 24 Sep 07

In a past issue of PcAdvisor, it suggested running the Windows firewall at the same time as running a commercial firewall.

I'd always imagined this would cause conflict between them and lead to problems.

Anyone with experience or thoughts on this ?

Hi 10x,

You can only run one firewall at a time,{SOFTWARE}

I think PcAdvisor is stating is that you can use two firewalls only if one is software/ eg/ Windows/ zone alarm,

And the other is HARDWARE eg/ your Router

hope this helped you,

Reading from A Microsoft page last year it did say you could run windows firewall with any other firewall.Most folk would agree that one would be enough,but that was from Microsoft.
