    Umm... good question... should forum be use to discuss firewalls as well, or is that more software, because if so, I would rename this forum, "Network Related"

    I dont want to suggest forum overkill, but a forum on "Security", incl. Firewalls, hard and soft, Antivirus, Malware, etc. would be VERY HELPFUL.

    hmm, still trying to decide on the structure of the section, need this planned out xD

    maybe call it General Networking, and subdivide it into other sections like, Network Hardware and Network Software and Security

    dont forget that you man this forum now! i would say hardware firewalls would definently be eligible for this section. software firewalls are shaky, but if we could get a forum put into the software category about security as lemonade suggested(great idea btw), then software firewalls are definently for that forum.

    its your call man :)

    i am thinking about subdividing it because networking is so big now that it has soo many other fields it can branch out too.
