    This is related to previous post that I made.....

    I was previously using BLACKICE on our Win2003 Servers.. but, it was causing
    problems.. so, I got rid of it.. and just started using WINDOWS FIREWALL.. at
    someones recommendation...

    the problem with Windows Firewall.. is it is very TEDIOUS... because you
    can't open MULTIPLE PORTS to 1 Other IP Address.. without creating a bunch of
    exceptions...

    so... what are most people using.. as software firewalls... I am in the
    process of purchasing a Hardware Firewall... but, that is not yet in place..

    thanks,

    No question about it.
    It has a lot more abilities than any "hardware firewall" has a prayer of
    doing.

    Of course you can get a "hardware firewall" that run ISA on them as well.
