Oh ok. But I’ve never seen that one before except for today. I’ll be damned if I’m gonna let some script kiddie hijaak our site again!!! (anyone remember that one?) - I was just about ready to roll up my sleeves and go find the focker. :D
What will all these guests and Huffman and his friends now trying to turn the site into a battle field, you can expect anything from them. I’m just going to sit back and watch. :roll:
I’m questioning the wisdom of running a firewall 1) in software and 2) on the very computer you are protecting. Unless Derek is running it on another dedicated computer, in which case I still question the wisdom, I simply retract the implication that Derek doesn’t have said wisdom. :lol:
I run ZoneAlarm Pro on the machine directly connected to the cable modem at home (and then that machine shares the connection to two others via ZA’s version of ICS). It’s a home network, I don’t need a dedicated hardware firewall. Zone Alarm is better then the BlackICE crap that comes with XP, too.
You’re crazy. Hardware nat/firewalls with 4-port switches and including a wireless access point can be had for $80. They are vastly superior to all software alternatives short of pro-level Linux router installs.
I recommend the D-link DI-614+. The feature set of inexpensive routers these days is nothing short of amazing.
