    Hi,

    Does 98 have an inbuilt firewall? If it does can you give me a step by step on how to activate it?

    Thanks

    As evileye said Win 98 doesn't have an inbuilt firewall.

    However, IMHO I much prefer sygate over Zone Alarm which puts such a large footprint on your machine that it may cause resource problems. It is also more easily configurable on issues such as port 80.

    Have mercy!! Not the battle of the firewalls again.

    Added on edit: Only kidding, any replies about different choices and selections obviously may help someone.
