Firewall which works with F-secure..?

I work both from home and the office and when I am at work I sit behind the offices firewall, however when I am at home I need my own firewall. The problem is I have F-secure virus checker and this seems to have compatibility problems with lots of the free Firewalls. Zone Alarm said it was not compatible and I now seem to be getting problems with Sygate as well.

I seem to get a lot of traffic "blocked" and warrnings for hyjacking by F-secure files. The problem is that F-secure uses so many different files and I don't know which one to grant access eg fsgk32gt, gatekeeper handler ll all of which come out of the f-secure directory, but how do I know which one are real and if any are 'imposters'. It all seems very confusing.

I wondered if there was a firewall (preferably a freeware) which works well with F-secure?

Thanks for any help!
