    Default Using an external firewall (ZyWall ZyXel P1 portable firewall) with ZA

    Hello!

    I've read many forums stating the added benefit of using an external firewall in conjunction with a software based firewall.

    Is there any negative sides to this?

    The external firewall is just good as a filter too because I used to plug my comcast cable box directly into my computer and was getting massive background noise or ping requests from overseas.

    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks.

    Hi!personally the only drawback I see is that it must be attached to the USB to work, so it isdependent on your PC for power supply(unless it can be also attached to powerdirectly). For the rest it will filter out all noise coming from the internet and your ZA will focus on the outbound control.Cheers,Fax
