Hello members
I am using Comodo 2.4 firewal in a Fusion setup and I like to try to lower the CPU usage and wonder which of the firewalls uses the least CPU resources and still being comparable to the CF?
Thanks

This would probably be the smallest 1.1 mb (http://www.looknstop.com/En/)

But its not free, and its rules based I think

I tried it a few years ago. It was pretty complicated to configure then, since IIRC you have to add whatever ports etc yourself

That does not sound to promissing!
Any other options you can think of?

Theres quite a few firewalls that are small.

Only prob is like this one, theyre rule based

Have you tried quickheal firewall? its really usefull and has a low cpu usage. i use it and am pleased to say i have no complaints whatsoever. It needs the activation of Quickheal antivirus and its an extremley helpful with very small updates which you dont even know are updating! you can contact me on my cell phone PM (private message) me if you are interested.

Back again
After reading this and that online and also going through security forums I have installed Kerio 2.15.:)
So far so good. Definitely little CPU and Memory usage. So it looks promising.
