Introducing: Windows 10 Firewall Control Homepage (when ready, actual: Windows 8 Firewall Control) http://www.sphinx-soft.com/Vista/ You can get the fully working technical preview hier, incl. license for testing purpose http://vistafirewallcontrol.freeforums.org/the-latest-betas-releases-t6.html Same URL for the complete changelog. short briefing about new features: - ready for windows 10 - new connection pane (similar to TCPview -> https://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/sysinternals/bb897437.aspx) with the ability to create rules from this pane, whois - new: logging allowed-rules, can be disabled in each program rule - new: disable blocked logging in event-viewer and logfile - new: symbols for enabled/disabled status: ballons, allowed, blocked (in the program pane) - new: stats for allowed/blocked percentage in the program pane - new: stats indicates active or inactive program - new: import/export buttons in the settings pane - the xml file now contains almost all settings (not verified yet, but its much larger than before) - some new strings for translation, were hardcoded before no screens available for now, i have it working on win7 32&64bit, windows 8 & 10 pending, hope some1 of you can do. to mention - the new "allowed" logging is a bit annoying if not disabled - it is shown in the ballon tips and in the event pane. should be disabled by default. any other is a nice improvement. some hint for new comers http://www.sphinx-soft.com/Vista/pict/zone_rule.jpg right side the result "allowed/blocked" is only for this rule the "zone result" down left handles the complete handling of this collection. * blocked by default: no question, just a ballon or event * allowed by default: allow if no rule matched, but dont bother * blocked&question: blocked by default but ask what to do (can be very annoying) * allowed&question: allow if no rule matched, but ask for a zone (can be very annoying) i am using since version 5 but as long it functions proper i dont care, but this option left a behind anytime i hope i got that clear for you.
