Any recomendations for a firewall which supports internet connection sharing - preferrably freeware or free for home use.

I'm still using an older version of Kerio (2.1.5) as they dropped support for ICS in later versions.

:rolleyes: ...... and before someone suggests I should Google it, "yes" I have searched but haven't been able to find one that supports ICS. Would like to know what others are using.

Hmm Zonealarm supports ICS, BUT I think u have to register ZA to enable ICS.

You could try this http://smb.sygate.com/

Or http://www.jetico.com/ Which is pretty new, but not sure if it supports ICS. But its free.

If u use XP and it's firewall, thats better than nothing, u can enable ICS in XP. That'll work fine.

There is no harm in continuing to use your older version of Kerio if you are happy with it.

Some people use ZoneAlarm with a proxy to get around the ICS issue as the free version of ZA does not support ICS. Not sure if you can try that trick with other firewalls.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Will check Sygate Tiny Personal Firewall (very similar to Kerio) again but I didn't think the free version supported ICS.

Jetico looks promising, may give that a try.

Don't really want to use proxy software so if all else fails will just stick to the older version of Kerio I'm using now. I am running XP on both machines but don't want to rely on just XP firewall and I like the extra control that an independent firewall gives.
