    I have seen this firewall before and it looked light and interesting and the rule making seems to be quite good, something on the lines of Kerio, have to see if it supports ICS mode.

    Looks interesting, if rather simple, but probably effective. I'd like to try it soon and check it out. Looks like they just released a new version and have it starting as a service now, so that's cool.. Has some basic app control also. Might be promising... :)

    Well, I installed this one, and it is a steaming pile of dung. Excuse my language, but trust me.. ;)

    I tried this when I began searching for open-source firewalls. When I shutdown the software, it continued to block traffic and could only be fixed with a restart. Plus, it's only Winsock which is the most 'narrow-view' of the network stack. Not effective and not functional. Avoid.
