What's wrong with Windows Firewall? It works better than most, stays out of the way, no installation to manage, easily managed via GPO -- I don't get it. Granted it isn't ipfilter or even iptables, but nothing is on Windows and GPO is sweet and easy.

>I have been asked by our windows server team to find a managed host based firewall that they can use that will at the least report back to a central server.  They are not looking for a complete endpoint solution just a firewall to replace the windows firewall.  Any suggestions?
