I went to cnet downloads looking for a free firewall. Well they have some, or shall I say some number of thousands of them. I read user reviews on Zone Alarm and many say it's junk, crashes their systems, hard to uninstall, etc. Not going there. I remember recently someone saying in here that when they searched their local drive their firewall was telling them something was transmitting to a server in Redmond at One Microsoft Way...interesting. I'd like to install something, whether firewall or whatever, that records incoming and outgoing traffic. I don't need to see what data sent, but for example, I would like to be able to visit a website and do something, then look at the log to see what incoming and outgoing traffic went on during that time. This is just a matter of curiosity - not a security issue and not on a trading box. So I don't want to spend money. Does anyone have a recommendation as to what free application could accomplish this? Thanks.
