Discussion in 'other firewalls' started by Feandur, Aug 23, 2014.
I assume you are using the paid version??
Would indeed be a great feature. I support this .
That, on top of Glasswire 'Ask To Connect', would probably be all I would want on top of Windows Firewall - rather than an use additional program like WFC.
@_CyberGhosT_ Do you have Glasswire Firewall set to 'Ask To Connect' or do you let WFC handle that?
Maybe worth posting your request on the Glasswire Forum.
I realized they have a forum, I put down the one hitter i'm ok now. lol
I posted over there.
With WFC sleeping right now I have Glasswire set to "Ask"
Yes Paid not free.
It's not a cheap software. Do you think there is significant gain over Privatewall which is working well for me?
I never used PW sorry.
Keep us posted regarding any response from the devs.
Here ya go, check out Ken's reply and mine lol
I logged in and endorsed your request.
Top notch, thanks brother
Private Firewall is excellent. Just not supported anymore.
FWIW: (I am not familiar with this site but appears legit.)
GlassWire Pro - 3 PCs - Lifetime License - $29.00 (Reg. $99.99)
I grabbed the $29 deal over at ghacks deals. https://deals.ghacks.net/sales/glasswire-pro-lifetime-license-2
That's legit! GlassWire Pro is looking good here!
But what is so cool about this app? I still don't get it, do you see it as a true security tool, or you just like to monitor stuff, because with Win Firewall it's hard to do so?
The Free version is cosmetics. The pro version does block outbound.
I see it as a network dashboard, as well as a security tool, because of the detailed logging and alerts. It's good to know what's using my network. I use sysinternals tcpview, wireshark, and other tools as well. But GlassWire is such a no-brainer, that you really would never need to use another tool, unless you were trying to do some detailed packet analysis.
It's also a great front end for the Windows built-in Firewall. It adds the additional rules for inbound/outbound application blocking for you, so yup, that's a big time saver!
My favorite features:
'Ask to connect' (default deny outbound) - optionally you can use 'click to block' mode, and then click to block any you wish after you see the first access alert (default allow outbound)
Alerts tab - all alerts can be individually enabled/disabled in settings, and they are nicely logged in their own tab
Application version change alerts (good for keeping up with app auto-updates)
While you were away alerts (apps that accessed network during idle time)
Usage tab - view apps and traffic for selected time periods
Network tab - See all devices wired and wireless connected to your network, IP, MAC address, vendor ID
The graph looks cool, but I use it the least.
Hadn't tried 'While you were away' alerts (off by default). Trying it now.
Hi @paulderdash, any idea if it still crashing the system when used with rehips or was that fixed?
You have a good memory .
I don't know actually because Glasswire is still uninstalled on that machine. Also, ReHIPS is disabled.
Ok thanks. Was wondering if they fixed to buy the product but i am not going to fight bluescreens for it
Plus the free version does not have a "kill all connections" feature which I consider essential for a true firewall.
The free version is fine if you are OK with default allow outbound traffic. It is still a good monitor and logging tool. But for $29 you get default outbound deny and the lockdown feature that you mentioned.
If PW is working for you, I say no. PW is excellent still. I played with Glasswire a bit but, I do not see the need. Personal preference.
Glasswire v1.2.120 Released (November 21, 2017)
OK thanks for the clear review. It seems like a nice tool, but I wonder if I really need it. Perhaps the "network traffic logging" with history might come in handy, but it's quite hard to spot suspicious network connections. I have some of the same features in SpyShelter, but it's not as comprehensive as GlassWire.
