Tony - 
I've not used the built-in XP firewall....unless Microsoft is now shipping
ZoneAlarm with XP.  I've used Zone Alrm in the past and think that it is
"okay" at best.  I would recommend looking at BlackIce Defender and Tiny
Personnal Firewall (www.tinysoftware.com) as alternatives.  Both allow users
to customize their rules with little effort.

Subject: [Dshield] Functionality of WINXP built-in firewall

Has anybody had any first hand experience with the WINXP built-in firewall?
The idea was kicked down to me to review for remote users.  Management wants
to consider using it as a cost saving measure in the bid to shore up
security for the company, and all users.
