Anyone know of a suitable firewall for vista,it appears tat the usual ones,ie zonealarm etc are not suitable?

I thought that the version 7 was compatible. I believe that not all pro licences will be valid to use on this version.

It appears that zonealarm 7 is only compatible up to xp

ZA are working on this, as I'm sure most software companies are, but I can't give you a date when it will be released.

From what I have seen discussed on the ZA User Forum Microsoft have made it very difficult to incorporate third party firewalls all types and as a consequence ZA are having to build their Vista engine virtually from scratch.

The vista own firewall is first class.

Far better than the old xp, as it works both ways, and not only on incoming like xp did.
