R-Firewall

R-Firewall - free firewall competes against ZoneAlarm

advice from V. Subhash at http://vsubhash.com, Apr 2006

 

The first one is R-Firewall. After I learnt that a particular version ZoneAlarm Free was designed to phone home (perfect crime), I went in search of a replacement and tried several contenders. I settled on R-Firewall. Its interface is slightly more complex than ZoneAlarm Free but it is exactly what makes it so very appealing. You can configure things on a minute scale. I particularly like the URL blocking feature, which blocks ad sites - something that ZoneAlarm Free did not offer. It also maintains an extensive log.
