    I find it Wilder's is not informative as it use to be, bunch of non-informative questions. Need people like "paranoid2000" to get down to the basics.
    Questions are not about how the product works, but rather things like RSS feeds and the likes.
    Wilder"s has become very predestining. Cratering to the low informed. Please we need real testers.
    No dis on Simple-wall, but no real info about how it works, and real people testing.

    Sorry for late answer.
    On latest version (207b) the same?
    windscribeopenvpn.exe and windscribe.exe are enabled in simplewall?

    Setting a custom rule for a program i entered 80,443 to block (as in the example), and always get a praising, syntax error. So doing the port blocking won't work here. If I just enter one port at a time it seems to work. But I don't want to make two separate rules.
    New beta wont start on re-boot ( yes, is checked to start).
    Don't like not being able to block listening ports.
    Seems to get worse on every beta release.
    The 165 works the best on win 7 64.

    Ok, i hear you!

    Windows Firewall does not block them too. So many bugs because of it.

    So 165 is final release - he also passed the hard way before release , 2.x is beta version, i hope all bugs being fixed before release.

    Bug.

    ezgif.com-gif-maker.gif

    It happened after deleting a couple of custom rules. System tray app can't open context menu, nothing. Had to terminate it manually.

    Previous apps.xml:
    Code:
    <item path="C:\Program Files\Blue Ridge Networks\AppGuard\AppGuardAgent.exe" timestamp="1502115578" is_silent="true" is_enabled="false" />
    New apps.xml modified by simplewall v2.0.10b:
    Code:
    <item path="c:\program files\blue ridge networks\appguard\appguardagent.exe" timestamp="1502115578" is_silent="true" is_enabled="false" />
    I like more the way it was, with uppercase letters.

    It's a bug, now fixed. Update to 2.0.11b and remove lowercase "system" from the list, filters does not recognize this process in lowercase!

    PS: also fixed special rules for apps did not working, now all is A-Ok!

    Release v.2.0.11b · henrypp/simplewall · GitHub

    Of course, I think that's the paramount reason for third party firewalls to exist. Once you make your choice about it you can silence further alerts.

    I noticed something new, for me.

    Is the file rules_config.xml generated by simplewall.exe? Because I don't see it in the portable packages.

    Yes, it is internal rules configuration.

    I gather that simplewall is still a relatively new product, but how does it compare to Binisoft WFC?

    I am interested in relative 'strengths', especially from the perspective of a firewall 'noob' ...

    Weeeell.... It's simple and blocks definitely all, until you allow connection for applications manually. Try it, it have no installation required. Two clicks and it works.
