on and off reader, first time poster. i've been through quite a few firewalls, and have settled on 8signs for quite some time now. it's just so refreshingly simple compred to the bloat of all the majors who seem to be morphing into anti virus/trojan/firewall suites now. i prefer to keep it s simple and separate as possible, since the jack of all trades is the master of none. i've been using 8signs for quite a while. learning mode on, and just adding entries to set certain ports to be open/closed. however i'd love to add some form of application/component control to this. ie even though port 80 is open, have application x blocked from sending/recieving through it. or if i find a suspicious application, block it from all network activity till i can determine if its safe. i know appliction control is dubious, sice most firewalls give the web browser free reign over port 80 at least, so if it were hijacked that's you compromised, but surely some control is better than none? can anyone recommend something to use in conjunction with 8signs, that is lightweight? or failing that, a lightweight firewall that could meet my needs? if that's the case, jetico looks like a suitable candidate to me.
