Computer firewall





iyepes
Does someone know a good computer firewall which allows me to block certain IPs?

I prefer a ligth one, since I'm already using windows firewall to block ports.

If someone knows how to do it directly from the operating system, using windows server, it will be better.

Thanks.

As far as I remember this works for what you are trying to do

I think the best free firewalls are based on Linux.
It has a built in firewall, and uses a text based file for making the rules.
And you can add or remove rules using the command line.

If you don't know linux at all, then perhaps you can set up a test server and use google to find help on configuring it.

COMODO.
I'm using it over 3 years.
Very nice.
It is free version also.
It will looks like a paid one.
User_X
As Amann & cybersa said Comodo is an excellent choice.

I also recommend Outpost Firewall Free

And another good one, but has long been disconnected is Sygate Personal Firewall

Both top two are highly configurable

Don't forget to turn off the Windows firewall



I use Outpost myself as it comes bundled with a complete security program

I would recommend Sygate Personal Firewall, just as User_X did above. It can block certain ports and certain IP addresses, so it has the two features (along with many others) that you need. It's also very light on the system resources; it doesn't even slow down a computer that was built last millennium. I would also recommend disabling Windows Firewall since running two firewalls usually causes stability problems.

Personal computer operating systems include software-based firewalls to protect against threats from the public Internet. Its a technological barrier designed to prevent unauthorised or unwanted communications between computer networks or hosts
