Which free firewall do you use?

Is it just me or has Comodo become a piece of nagware!

BusyBox v0.61.pre (2006.05.16-02:16+0000) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

# iptables -V
iptables v1.2.6a

. Mostly just relying on the NAT rules though.

The built in Windows one

When I used Windows, I swore by Kerio Firewall 2.1.5.It was the last of their freeware versions and the later ones became bloated.It's considered bad security practice to use older, unsupported software but it's the shizzle.

I've always used Zone Alarm without a problem but untick all the extras they want to install.

yep agree nagware - good description.
Windows firewall along with my routers firewall is good enough for me, for now.

That's going back! I remember using Kerio when I was still on Win98, preferred it to the ZoneAlarm that always seemed to "have issues". From memory, I think after the last free version, they went to v4 (skipped v3 or maybe they were beta testing and redesigned it, can't remember).

If I wasn't using the firewall which is part of my internet security software, I would likely just use the Win7 one.

Windows 7 default plus my router.

just the built-in firewall to Win 7. Incoming Firewall also at the router.
Also I don't run unnecessary services.

I've used Comodo, Kerio, and one other.can't remember it.

Currently use the Windows one.

plus most routers have them built in anyway.

BTW.
Who remembers Black Ice Defender!
