Filsecab Firewall - free firewall

recommendation from Fran Bott, webmistress of GammawGeek


I was doing some searching through Microsoft's Market Place for free software the other day, and ran across this firewall -


Filsecab Personal Firewall



I am not big on changing firewalls as Zone Alarm has served me well over the years, but occassionally I will try one out. So I decided to try this one.


I was pleasantly surprised. It was easy to install and required very little setup as it is smart about MS products and a few others. I also took it to the GRC site to test it. I only ran the Ports test. Out of all those boxes that show when the test is finished, all were green (stealth) except 2 and they were blue (closed). If my memory serves me correctly, the free version of zone Alarm does not do that well.


And for those that like to tweak and tighten down the firewall, there are many advanced settings that can be accessed for that purpose. Filscab is easy enough for the beginner and offers advanced features for those that want or need it.


Note: Personal and Professional Editions are free. The one I downloaded and used is the Professional Edition.
