I recently purchased a K8N NEO 2 Platinum motherboard, I read somewhere
this motherboard can use a NVIDIA firewall? If so where can you download
this firewall?

TIA,
Craig

I found it.....

I downloaded the NVIDIA Firewall here
http://tw.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard/Support/TechnologyG...

For Gigabyte but works with my MSI K8N Neo 2 Platinum motherboard.
Must have the NVIDIA onboard NIC enabled to use.

Well, from looking at Google. nVidia firewall is hardware, so all you
need are the Forceware nVidia chipset drivers, from nVidia.

This is a "designed for business" product as it assumes your internet
connection is via the network. It donsn't recognize my ADSL modem at all.
This isn't suprising as it's a hardware firewall checking the chipset lan
without the need of software.

Well it works fine for my "home" network behind a router on cable modem.
I can open up "DMZ" zone on my router and expose the Neo 2 computer
running the NVIDIA Firewall so it's not protected by the router. When
running
the Neo 2 computer with the NVIDIA Firewall I get all Stealth from Shields
Up.

The vast majority of "home" users will have their modem directly connected
via serial or USB. A lan only firewall is not a home product and Nvidia
should make that clearer.

It recommends "not to install" this in the manual. Don't know why but if
you bought the motherboard I would have to think it came with a manual.
Read it.

Here is what the manual says:

6. The following screen displays the installation of NVIDIA Firewall and
ForceWare Network Access Manager. It is a software firewall to protect
the softwares from hacking.
However, it is strongly suggested that you do not install this
component, for you have to search other PC with its IP address instead
of its PC name in your local network. Click No to continue.
If you accidentally install NVIDIA Firewall and ForceWare Network Access
Manager,
we recommend you uninstall it by using the Add or Remove Programs function
in the Control Panel.

What is the page number in the manual? The NVIDIA firewall works fine,
I was just trying it out.
I'm behind a Hardware router with NAT, I'm safe behind the router, plus
I run a software firewall Sygate Pro. I never had any problems
with the NVIDIA firewall.
I went back to Sygate Pro because it has more features.

NVIDIA Hardware Firewall is such a big selling point on these motherboards
Plus the newer Nforce 4 motherboard mention the NVIDIA Firewall.
That's the only reason I wanted to try it.
If I choose to run it's my business. I didn't say for anybody else to.
LOL are you a cop? If not you should be.

Here is a link to the section of the manual that says not to install. It
is talking about Nvidia Software Firewall though.

I don't know or really care what the difference is, but here it is for
what it is worth.
