Hi,

My test PC is connected to the web. What firewall/anti-virus will work with Vista RC1?

Avast and AVG free editions were upgraded already to work with Vista betas.
From XP SP2 and onwards, the OS has an integrated firewall. I have a router (integrated hardware firewall, that's why i don't use a software firewall in XP SP2) and Vista firewall enabled.

Thanks Joseph. I too have a router with integrated hardware firewall - I will get either Avast or AVG free.

And i have the Vista firewall only enabled to see how it behaves, so just for testing the OS. In the end i would turn it off, of course. :)
The hardware firewall in my router (Alcatel Speedtouch) is enough.
