    Hi,

    after installing LnS on windows 8 pro.

    still windows firewall is on and working.

    is it safe to use both firewall together ?

    any suggestion/experience ?

    i've used both together on W7 & W8.

    they seem to work well together.
    the common wisdom is to only run 1 firewall but i've read other users have used both firewalls.

    I am also looking for a simple firewall without hips for a Windows 8 laptop, it is worth buying a license to LnS now or has it been abandoned ?

    oh,sorry to hear that i tried it in a VM and liked it, pretty lightweight and classic firewall.

    Shame it has been abandoned :(

    Hi arsenaloyal
    It works :thumb:, and [IMO] you will find it very hard if not impossible to find a better, lighter, and easier to use rule based firewall.

    does not need to be updated
    It is rule based
    update it yourself or buy Phant0m Ruleset
