i am set up behind a router (hardware firewall). even so, i like the idea of knowing when my programs are sending information over the net. i'd like to be able to approve or deny such requests.
i have zone alarm installed on one computer, however, installing it has been a nuisance on another computer. i don't need all of ZA's functionality. i just want to monitor my programs contacting the net and be able to approve or deny such contacts.
is there any software out there that is free and will enable this w/o the headaches of installing zone alarms free product?
