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?

Thanks

    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.
