I'm running XP Pro SP2 on and AMD 1.7 gig. My question is, is it logical to run a firewall in addition to the one built into SP2, or will things get screwed up. I also have a firewall built into the router I'm using. Any thoughts on this appreciated.
Thanks, BuddyB

You should not run more then one software firewall as it may cause problems. It is, however, advisable to have both hardware and software firewalls. Setting up the firewall in your router, and the one in SP2, should offer you optimum protection (but don't be fooled into thinking you are fully protected, nothing can do that!).

Here are a couple of related topics:



Thanks for the input.
