Server based software firewall? (for WinXP Pro server)

... small LAN running behind a hardware NAT Router/"Firewall"/ADSL modem

LAN consists of Win XP Pro clients each with Zone Alarm.

What sofware firewall package could I run on the XP Pro file & print server for *unattended* operation?

Is there something out there that could *email* me alerts?

Thanks, Stef

It may be waiting for Sp2 as this has all new XP firewall, reviews sem to say it very good should be out soon and the best bit is that its free

Hmmm,
Thanks!

Yea, I read somewhere that the XP SP2 firewall is more configurable than the present incarnation ... Also that SP2 had a better 'AutoUpdate'

Look forward to it...

Thanks, again!

Had a look at the beta of sp2 and looked good, quite a few changes ti IE, the firewall can be set for dif ports and there is a build it popup blocker.
