Simplest firewall possible


Thief IV

I've always assumed that when you click "allow" on your software firewall that it would allow a program to access the network freely. Apparently that is not the case with Ashampoo, because it always screws up my SQL server.

I want a software firewall that just allows or denies programs from accessing the network, and doesn't have a bunch of other weird, hidden security features that block my server from communicating with itself. The only reason I even use a software firewall is to notify me that a new program wants to access the network for the first time.

Do you know of one that will fit the bill?

For a pay firewall, go with Outpost Pro.
Freeware? Aim for Comodo Pro.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
