Lots of good points and description of what a firewall is.  One important lesson for me is that even if you are running an excellent virus protection suite, addware and malware detection , your firewall also protects your computer from the network.  You authorize what goes in and what goes out. Even if you have a hardware firewall built into your router , that still doesnt monitor what goes out from you computer in most cases.  Using a good software firewall program not only gives you a database of problem sites , it makes you authorize communication with sites on the internet.  When that box pops up and informs you that a program is trying to contact a site and you are not running anything that is going out to the internet , you now have a strong indication your protection has missed something !   ;D

A firewall is a piece of computer system or network, which is designed to prevent unauthorized access, enabling communications authorized. It is one or more devices that are configured to allow or block network transmissions are based on standards and other criteria. Firewalls can be implemented either in hardware or software, or both. Firewalls are frequently used against unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks, Internet access, especially intranets. All messages entering or leaving the intranet pass through the firewall, which checks each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.

Firewall (computing), a technological barrier designed to prevent unauthorized or unwanted communications between computer networks or hosts.Internet firewall protecting the nation from the hostile invasion of a private local area network. Consequently, many LANs are now connected to the Internet where the connection could have been too risky to the Internet.

Firewall is a computer program that controls the flow of information from the Internet to your computer. There are two different types of firewalls available for you to use - Hardware firewalls and Software firewall.

A firewall is a secure and trusted machine that sits between a private network and a public network.[1] The firewall machine is configured with a set of rules that determine which network traffic will be allowed to pass and which will be blocked or refused. In some large organizations, you may even find a firewall located inside their corporate network to segregate sensitive areas of the organization from other employees. Many cases of computer crime occur from within an organization, not just from outside.

A firewall is a device or set of devices designed to permit or deny network transmissions based upon a set of rules and is frequently used to protect networks from unauthorized access while permitting legitimate communications to pass.
