What is a suitable firewall to install in a network where 11 computers are running under Windows 98 and Windows Me. The main server runs under Windows 2000 Server. Is there any freely available firewall yo use in a corporate network ?? :)

What type of firewall are you asking about?
Are you looking for a Software based or a Hardware Based version?
Naturally the Hardware isn't free, and if your running a network like you have described, I'd look a little higher up than free for confident & secure coverage. I've used the free one's, tried Norton's Enterprise Edition, but moved to a Hardware based version for peace of mind.

yeah, hardware is the best way to create a firewall. Win2k server has
a built in router feature but it's not all that secure. Your best bet, is to go
spend $60 and get a linksys router and hook your network up to that.
