Re: F-Secure 2014 Internet Security Beta Test Firewall

Because the computer that I am runing is real sucks.

 

I did not want to buy a Mac.

 

Because I've got people remote controlling my computer. And disrupting things when I am doing hefty work on my beta testing.

 

No doubt, I have Apple Cupertino people that I got an AppleSeed Invitation to do their OS X beta testing.

 

Well I do not have their latest and greatest Macbook pro to test their products.

 

I stll looking around.For a new computer.

Oui en effet, le pare-feu windows est vulnérable.

mine leaves only port 80 open which is needed and thus normal to allow legit http connections, mail etc.

no problems so far.

Windows firewall is a strong one, it only lacks a nice gui to make things easier, especially hand configuring outgoing connections.

I agree 100% and I can highly recommend Windows Firewall Control by BiniSoft: http://www.binisoft.org/wfc.php

It's a great additional GUI to Windows Firewall. For a small donation you can unlock the notifications feature of all outbound connections. From there you can easily create rules, temporary or permanent. I would say it has exactly everything that the Windows Firewall GUI lacks!

 

You can enable logging of allowed/blocked connections, and compared to the "not-so-great" win fw log this one also shows what program made the connection. And if you need to install a program that uses temp files during the installation process, you can easily switch "Profile" temporarily to allow all connections.

To sum up: You will never again have to open "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security" Smiley Very Happy
