hardware only. ^^

Router and software firewall on most machines that I use for accessing the internet, router firewall only for the folding-only rigs, and Kerio firewall for one machine that faces the Internet. So I voted both even though I have machines in both, harware only and software only.

hardware NAT/Firewall in router only

software firewalls are annoying, always end up blocking *myself* at some point regardless of how many rules i set, and they don't really give any higher form of protection over hardware from my experience with them

Router + windows firewall. Bah, had to change my vote.
<span style="font-size:18px;"><strong>Holy c*** I don't know how that happened or how it got fixed.

* hands oldfett a blunt instrument * :P

As for the poll, I took the 'both' option... my homebrew router/firewall box running Coyote Linux (featuring NAT) & a variety of MS, nVidia & ZoneAlarm software firewalls :D

Call me paranoid :ph34r: LMAO :lol:

AntivirXP, and I guess a hardware firewall in our T-Online router, but I'm not sure of that...

I guess I have no excuse for not being as awesome as King... - iKillSteal

Same.
Was using a software firewall as well, but it wasn't really doing much so don't any more.

Hardware firewall in my router, that's it. Software firewalls are annoying, and I've found no need for them so far.
