    Hello,

    i have paid version of Online Armor firewall and i really love this stuff... unfortunatelly, Online Armor doesn't work on Windows 7 :(
    BTW Mike do you know if TallEmu have started investigation in this case, or when they do smth in this direction?

    Well, I read great Stem's tutorial about configuration Vista FW (https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=239750 ) but the point is - it doesn't work for me. For example i don't know how to set outbound rules for Windows 7 gadgets on my Desktop - result > i don't have actual information about weather.

    So i'm looking for Firewall which will work with Win7 and will be easy to configuration. :thumb:

    Comodo runs like a charm on Seven 64 bit.

    Comodo seems to be the only third party, standalone FW that's working on Windows 7 at the moment. Symantec has released Nortong 360 v3 which works on Windows 7. There is also a Windows 7 beta for Norton Internet Security 2009. I know they are not what you're looking for, but just FYI. Windows 7 RC1 is going to be around for almost a year, so I'm hopeful the security vendors will get onboard before RTM.

    Is that the current release version available for download on their site?

    I suspect this will be after the anti-virus release... but only Mike could answer that one for sure... You might pose the question over at the TallEmu forums...

    Which version of OP do you mean - latest free or paid?

    If one runs then the other probably would too, since they don't show either as compatible on their site. Probably have to install it in compatibility mode, I tired installing the Free version and it refused to install.

    Edit: Just installed OP Free x64 on Windows 7 x64 using Vista x64 SP1 compatability mode and the install went fine, however, on reboot, I got consistent BSOD's (tried twice) after the login. So it looks like a no go on Windows 7 x64. It ran fine in Vista x64. I had better luck with Comodo, it installs and appears to work fine on 7 x64 if you install in Vista SP1 compat mode. Also Vista Firewall Control works fine with Windows 7 x64, probably the most hassle free of them all.

    I am using a 30 day trial version of the "paid".

    I installed it without a compatibility mode on 32 bit Windows 7.

    It is a simple GUI for the Windows Firewall, you have to create your own (Outbound)Ruleset. But I ihink it is easy to set the Rules.

    The current released version of Outpost does not support Windows 7 yet.

    You mean it does not run on the Windows 7 64bit version.

    Runs fine on my 32bit version.

    I don't know- I became a first time user of OP when I installed it on Win7.
