Does anyone know if running two firewalls simultaneously is any better than just running a single firewall? Is anyone doing this? and if so, what combination would you recommend? (freeware versions)

Only run 1 firewall. Running 2 will cause instability as they will try to compete with each other and cause system problems.

I have my win xp firewall, and my norton firewall running at the same time, I've just checked lol, I though t that the xp one was stopped. Would it be better to stop the xp or the norton. Sorry to put it in this thread but it is the same topic.

cheers woody

there is no use for two firewalls if they block the same contents and same ports.
Its better to configure and tune one firewall rather than run more than one.
