    I really dont know much about Bartware firewall, But I get a little nerveous when program disclaimers are stated like this. I looked at the screen shots but didn't reconize it. I do know that Bartware antivirus is antivir.So there is no telling who designed this firewall. o_O

    Hi.

    I did a quick Google search for this firewall.
    I was looking for any user reviews/comments on this one.
    There are lots of places with the download available but I haven't found any opinions on it so far.
    The disclaimer alone would make me very uncomfortable with the idea of trying it.

    Same results when I looked previously.

    Not at all, it was your post that jogged my memory...teamwork :)

    Best thing to do unless you have a test system. While I will do limited testing/evaluating of established software on my system, I do not have a dedicated test system, nor the time for lesser known products. All we can do is wait to see if someone has tried BartWare PF and chooses to comment on it.

    Regards,

    I downloaded the thing out of curiosity and it was on my system exactly an hour. Now, I'm not saying it doesn't work, but I took it to pcflanks and everythiing was wide open. To me it's a work in progress. I spent a little time trying to configure it but finally gave up and removed it. Keep in mind though that I never really got into it. Not much help, I know, and I won't put the Bartware firewall down as useless. Somebody with more experience might be able to make it work.
