I've been poking around for a firewall that doesn't use a ton of system resources. Zone Alarm was by far the best firewall I've ever used, but it's just too bulky.

Any suggestions?

I use Kerio and I think it's pretty good.

Agnitum Outpost Free seems to do the trick. It uses generally <8k, anybody want to tell me how well Kerio / Sygate do?

I tried Outpost and I personally don't really like it because it seemed a bit too slow for me. Kerio seems a bit lighter. I wouldn't recommend Sygate just because it's owned by Symantec.
