    If it is behind a NAT (i.e. connected to the home router), just disable the router 's UPnP feature through its web interface. This way it is impossible for anyone to connect to your PC (inbound) and there is no need for a firewall. The downside is that you have to open up any inbound ports you might need manually (that 's what UPnP does automatically).
