This is a simple question,but diffrent opions as to rights or wrong,I'm thinking of installing AOL's MacFees free firewall,to try it out i've got ZoneAlarm installed at the moment,would I have to uninstall it or just disable,having been
told that having 2 firewalls would cause conflics.

Thanks in advance.

The free firewall isn't much to write home about... I have used it myself, but ditched it when I got "NIS2005"....

There shouldn't be any problems, but just in case, just disable the other firewall.... Sometimes they can "fight" each-other, but you can configure them to work together....

Its never a good idea having two firewalls installed at the same time,as conflicts may and probably will arise,you could however disable ZA to try out Mcafee idealy though it may be better to uninstall ZA to prevent conflicts,but if i were you i would stick with ZA in my opinion its by far the better product.
