    Yes...I'm using but actually not in daily work...LnS is installed with SD in one of snapshots of my system (Keriver 1-Click) that I'm using from time to time to work/test some apps.

    LnS free?...according to its page you have only 30 days free trial...I don't know how it will work without typing valid e-mail and serial number.

    Same question here.
    I don't mind LnS not working on Win10. I use Win7 64 and will upgrade to Linux.
    LnS is the best firewall I've ever had. The recent ones I tried are heavy, invasive and some have altered my system settings to the point I had to restore it.
    If I understand, it's no longer possible to buy LnS?
    If the owner is no longer interested at it, maybe he could make it free and unlock it? This software doesn't deserve to be killed. It's a big loss.
    Is there any other firewall that is comparable to LnS, light, a real firewall that does nothing else but filter network connections?

    when i can counter-troll
    Most actual FWs software are bonus features in suites, unlike before. So basically standalone are almost dead.
    I'm using customized Windows FW and it is good enough for me, since i am in my own network behind a NAT router and my system is locked.
    However if i had to install a 3rd party FW , i woud set a corporate or hardware one.

    I have been using Tiny Wall for a while and like it. easy to use and you don't have to disconnect your physical internet connection. Just click block all. It also has a search on Virus Total.

    Hey Guys I am still using LnS on Windows 7 64bit. Best Firewall period. Been trying to get hold of PhantOm regarding unlocking this firewall to freeware or at least confirming payed for license is good forever regardless of Windows Product ID. Anybody have any kind of pull to PM him regarding his health and this? Can't believe he is going to let this die without saying something about its future. Not all of us want to run Windows 8,8.1,10. Mabie we can get a petition together?

    Phant0m is not the developer of LnS firewall. It was Frederic. Unfortunately Frederic has not visited this forum in many years.

    Phant0m had a supplemental ruleset for LnS.

    Yea I'm aware of that but one of the two had to shut down the purchase of LnS. I'm just trying to make sure that my license will be good for as long as I need it since I paid for it, hence the name soft4ever...
