After trawling through a few forums, I can't seem to find a definative answer for the above subject.....

Anyone have any strong views on the subject?

If there is a point to it .... anyone care to tell me the best one for Windows PPC5??

Thanks in advance

I still don't see the reason for a firewall on a Pocket PC, unless you think some services could be running on the device, while it is connected to a network. This is not the default configuration. Really up to you, but I don't feel this is a concern at this stage.

Of course if we find out that a new malware can install itself on a Pocket PC and then open a TCP port to listen for incoming connections... Then of course we will need firewalls, to know about, and block, unknown prograsm.
