    I'm looking for a firewall with password protection and "block all traffic" function. I've already tried Comodo but it felt heavy on my system. Thanks!

    Outpost has password protection for its configuration and can be set to Block All traffic.

    A bit off topic, if you don't mind, but is there some firewall out there having the capability to stop all traffic IN and OUT when the fw is not operational? I mean at booting up or if/when killed by some malware, for exemples.

    Hi Ruinebabine,

    LnS can do this for you *puppy*

    Just check (if not already checked) these boxes in LnS options:
    lns_stopped.png
    It's an answer to you first Q (when fw application is killed by malware)
    In this case even if malware or you by mistake – kill looknstop.exe process – LnS will be still work.

    For the second one – protection at booting up – you have to play with your registry, but it's so easy, have a look at this Phant0m's post.

    If you ask me... LnS is very small and lightweight firewall with enormous capabilities that is still underestimated by many. Sure it maybe for someone doesn't look cool and fancy because of old-fashioned skin without all these shiny features like HIPS, malware scanners, etc... but hey it's not all in one package. It's a strong and pure firewall which has done well his job.

    i noticed this for windows 7 firewall control - it crashed and web was gone - oops.
    major - nah, not really - problem on w7fc ist that is has switches to be turned off.
    only password can prevent that in admin account.
    i cannot tell it for w7fc but i assume i cant do that - it has no driver, only a service.

    Thanks Creer. You are perfectly right on all accounts about LnS and I should have remember those features were already available!
    I only hope the developer will be back with us soon... Even if his firewall is working very fine for now, it would just be reassuring to know he is at polishing his pure diamond to keep it alive and kicking in years to come :thumb:

    Ruinebabine, FWIK after reading official LnS forum here on Wilders, Frederic e-mail support works pretty well and he gives reply everyone who need it.
    I guess he has no time for communities but he still has his e-mail support ON. So don't worry friend :)

    @ OP Openbsd has what is called packet filter and I think it's awesome. It's a 100% customizable firewall that you must set up manually. This might be a great idea if you are familiar with unix like stuff.

    I think you can also switch over to a unix like system and form a hardened kernel. For example if you encrypt your harddrive, boot ubuntu from the cd, then use all the rest of the memory somehow until no more can be stored then you will have created what is called a completely static system. Can't say that this is very useful to most people though, but you get the idea lol.

    No, lol. I really like Fedora and OpenBSD. I sometimes use a Mac but almost all of the features I use on it are open source.
