Recommend a firewall - small footprint

Hi Can anyone recommend a free Firewall that preferably is rule based and only has a small footprint. I would like something that handles fragmented packets. (see the recent threads about Kerio 2.1.5.) I am presently using the latest Kerio, which I think is good, but it take a large slice of memory.


Seasons greetings to all.

If you want a traditional software firewall you might try Filseclab. Rule based with the usual features. Here is a link:

Another possibility is Jetico, although it is more annoying with a lot of popups until you get it tamed:

Yet another light one is SensiveGuard. Link here also:

All of the above are free and fairly light, much lighter than the newer Kerio 4.xx incarnations. More on the par of Kerio 2.

Thanks I have tried within the last week Filseclab. I liked it very much but it used twice the mmory of the current Kerio, which itself is quite large. I had to uninstalled it, which was sad. Will have a look at the others. Greatly appreciated Thanks John
