Which Firewall for win 98se

  Greenfungi 00:45 17 Dec 2005

After looking at the thread posted by manfromdelmonte concerning free firewalls , I have found that only zone labs runs on win98se.
Could someone please advise me on any other alternatives.

I'm also using AVG free addition antivirus,and would like to avoid conflicts between the two.

Thanks in advance.

to use AVG without possable conflicts, turn off the Anti Virus and E mail scanner in Zone Alarm, allowing AVG to cover these function

I use zonealarm with win98se and have used sygate
and kerio with no problems.

I used sygate when I was using Win 98se without any problems.

If you're looking for something resource-light (though admittedly out of date) Kerio 2.15. Search this page for `Kerio` click here

OK, so there's not that much need to search a page with 3 entries :)

I have been using the Sygate Personal FREE Firewall with Avast A/V on Win 98SE for about the last four years with no problems at all.
Initially tried Zone Alarm but didn't like it.

Focus software produces escan which is a firewall, antivirus, anti spam and parental control all in one for about a tenner.
It has been running for about six months on a laptop and there have been no problems with any hackers or virus's.
I bought it in Woollies but any where that sells Focus software should sell it.
The license is for a year when it has to be renewed.
The software runs in the back ground but only uses 32mb RAM to do this.
Regular updates which are automatic.
Apparently there is free telephone and e mail support.
