I've, in the past, used Tiny Personal Firewall 2.0.15... I know TPF
eventually became Kerio, and that Kerio 2.1.5 is recommended in some
circles. Is it actually any different from TPF 2.0.15?? Is there any
reason for me to switch from TPF to Kerio?? I'll be running my server
under Win 98SE.

More about : tpf kerio

I started with Tiny then switched to Kerio.

Tiny had a incompatibility with SpeedDisk, the disk defragmenter in Norton
SystemWorks that would cause SpeedDisk to stop 3 times during the defrag,
waiting for some dialog box to continue. Quite annoying! This got fixed
in Kerio.

I was able to move the ruleset from Tiny to Kerio without trouble.

Kerio 2.1.5 is not the same as Tiny 2.0.15. Yes, it is a good idea to use the
latest (and last small footprint) version.

I hope you aren't planning to run a public server in W98, for starters, and
Kerio /personal/ firewall is really not suitable for a server.

Cool!! Thanks, both of you, for your prompt advise... I'll go ahead and
switch...
