Hi. First, I've red that Linux is almost completely virus-free for various reason (no privilege for non-root users, few users and viruses...). It can be a carrier, not infected. So, how to configure my connection so I can scan all files transfered? The problems are two:
1) I send emails. I would like these message would be almost completely virus-free
2) I have OpenSuse 10.2 AND WinXP installed (due for some programs), and I exchange files from Linux to Win. I want this files (maybe downloaded) not to be infected.
Second, now I'm connected to the internet and I would like to configure a firewall. I'm connected to a home network and haven't nothing precious to be hidden... but don't know what an intruder can do. I've to configure firewall? How can I do it?
(I know I've written this post as a monkey, but my english is not perfect and my knowledge on Linux at least...)
PS I'm connected to the internet via a gateway and a wireless connection
