On the same subject, What Server Based Firewall do you suggest? Need a Software based install on server 2003.

Or How can I use the Windows firewall to block IP Ranges?

Get yourself a Juniper Barracuda (hardware firewall). Got a few of these babies at work and I'm very happy it doesn't let employees waste their time looking for pr0n :D

I have been using the Vista "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security" aka advfirewall with netsh scripts. I disable all rules and block traffic by default in both directions for all network profiles. I then create very specific rules to allow things to work, for example:

netsh advfirewall reset
netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state on
netsh advfirewall set allprofiles firewallpolicy blockinbound,blockoutbound
netsh advfirewall firewall set rule name=all new enable=no
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Internet Explorer x86" dir=out program="%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" enable=yes profile=any action=allow protocol=tcp remoteport=21,80,443
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Internet Explorer x86" dir=out program="%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" enable=yes profile=any action=allow protocol=udp remoteport=53

I disable the DNS Client service so I have to manually allow DNS (port 53 udp) per process.

For my gateway I currently have a WRT54GL running Tomato Linux firmware, but I switch back and forth to another WRT54GL running DD-WRT sometimes. I am working on replacing it with pfSense, just building a list of rules in a virtual network and deciding if it should be run natively or virtually.

I use Mil Firewall and do recommend Mil Firewall :thumbup . This program monitors all programs that try to breach into your computer and shows detailed information about them. It has independent protection of each network connection and predefined rules for frequently used programs. I love it, i love, i love it :wub:

Also it has very modern appearance, look it here: http://www.milincorporated.com/mil-firewall.html
