Anybody know of a cost effective firewall that will let IIS6 work on XP?

I've tried everything, but it seems symantec internet security 2005 won't let me load and run IIS6.

I don't really want to pay £100's for symantec enterprise edition. How does everyone else do it?

Yes, Sygate Firewall (free version): http://smb.sygate.com/products/spf_standard.htm

If you like that firewall you can purchase the pro version for 39.95.

Also, you'll need to create a rule to allow ALL TCP traffic on port 80 to you.

Let me know if you have any further issues,

My mistake.

Seems the problem is with Norton Anti-virus and not the firewall.
