Having used Sygate for years until it was bought over and killed by Symantec I then moved to Core Force. Sadly neither are in development or work with Windows 7. If anyone could recommend a good alterative (Free or Feeware) it would be a great help? It must have - The ability to open inbound / outbound ports to specific applications and protocols Have a secure setting that blocks everything and prompts for access via popup that can be selected to "remember" the setting The ability to port forward i.e. 80 to 8080 inbound Ideally not have any other junk installed with it, i.e. AV, Malware Scanner etc Ideally not have a gui thats desiged for idiots that dont know what a firewall really can do. So far the closest thing I've found in Zone Alarm Pro (Free does some of the above). I wasnt a fan of Tinywall or Comodo either. Anyone got any tips please?
