Free Firewalls that allow ICS

  babybell 15:42 09 Jan 2008

I have recently connected my Xbox 360 to my pc but have trouble connecting to the internet through it when i have Zonealarm running as apparently it does not have the ICS function with the free version so i have to turn off zonealarm and switch the basic windows protection which is a hassle. Does anyone know of any free firewalls that will allow me to connect the Xbox and just tell it too allow the connection?

I much prefer Comodo and Jetico (free version), both of which are quite decent for networking. But I don't use ICS, so I can only suggest that you try them.

However, there is - as far as I know - no reason why even ZA cannot fully support ICS if it is configured correctly. How to do that will have to be left to a ZA fan to answer....

It may bo old now , but if you are running Windows XP , Sygate free firewall works well with ICS , look for version 5.5 or 5.6 . In fact , click here for the download !!
