Is there a proven non-buggy bidirectional firewall that works on both WinXP 32 and WinXP 64?
The WinXP firewall is not a viable option, as it doesn't have enough control of outbound traffic.
Kaspersky supports WinXP and Vista 32/64... any opinions on Kaspersky firewall?
Comodo appears to be buggy in Vista 64... any opinions on Comodo for WinXP 64?
ZoneAlarm and Norton are falling behind... ZA doesn't support 64-bit OS's, and Norton's 64-bit support appears to be spotty.
I need individual firewall controls for internet access and local network access. The requirement is to lock out internet access (as needed), while allowing full local network access.
This means the firewall must be configurable to stop 100% of bidirectional internet traffic (including all WinXP outbound traffic), while allowing 100% of local network traffic.
I need a feature similar to ZoneAlarm's dual zone controls (internet, and local zones), that allows full individual control of traffic in the two zones.
Again, the firewall must work well in both WinXP 32 and WinXP 64.
