Safer to have XP firewall with another firewall?

Yes, no? Or is it just the same?

XP's Firewall only blocks incoming and does not check outgoing, so a Firewall such as ZoneAlarm which protects both ways is better. You should not use both as there may be conflicts.

My Norton firewall on my Internet gateway, does not stealth ports becuase if it did my trusted computers cannot access the internet.???

www. grc .com por test I did and shown some as open and some as closed, then disable File sharing and ICS and pops back to stealth, why?
