2 firewalls running

  Thomo1 23:27 08 Dec 2004

I downloanded Zonealarm firewall the other week and have that running. I also have the firewall running tho in NIS2005.

Ever since ive had ZA i have not heard a reak out of NIS firewall. Its like it doesnt work anymore!!!

Is it wise to have 2 firewalls running at the same time??

reak should be PEAK.

2 firewalls is overkill, both ZA and norton quite adequate on their own.

You are quite lucky that there are no conflicts between them causing you trouble. No peek out of Norton probably because ZA is more efficient and getting in on the act first. I would suggest removing the Norton firewall. I would think you'd see a slight boost in performance.

i have disabled ZA at the minute.

ive had no probs really with it. get the odd problem trying to access my homepage now and again but not encountered anything else.

Zone alarm seems to cover all of the alerts but Norton gets straight in there with trojan alerts!
