Editors' review

Attempting to offer an all-in-one Internet-security application, Armor2net Personal Firewall yields mixed results. Initial installation and setup are easy, as the application walks you through several configuration screens. However, the program's interface is somewhat confusing and may not be clear for beginners. The Net State and Program Filter tabs do an excellent job of indicating which programs are running, which remote addresses they are trying to access, and which preferences have been set for automatic-access attempts. A pop-up window alerts you when an unrecognized program or process attempts to access your machine. Unfortunately, certain other features do not work as well. The banned-sites list failed to block subpages of a listed URL, and the pop-up blocker didn't work at all during our tests. Armor2net Personal Firewall suits those seeking a basic firewall application, but its failure to deliver on other advertised features certainly tempers our enthusiasm.

    "Only works for main / admin account."

    June 08, 2012   |   By f8ldzz

    Version: Armor2net Personal Firewall 3.12

    Pros

    No time to find anything good since the one big CON is glaring.
    Why do I have to fill this section out???

    Cons

    Barfs when you have more than one account on your PC.
    ***???

    Summary

    In this day and age when most of us run more than one login on one PC, why would programs not be able to run over all accounts?
    (Google Chrome are you listening???)
    It's ridiculous to think that this firewall program is limited to your one, main, admin account.
    It's just too dangerous to be running an admin account with all the virii and trojans out there.

    June 13, 2011   |   By SatyrMage

    Version: Armor2net Personal Firewall 3.12

    Pros

    Unknown...

    Cons

    Publisher website is listed as Untrustworthy by Web of Trust -- see the comments as to why.

    Reason # 2: This software has never been updated! (see below)

    Summary

    Regarding software version: this program was added to CNET in Nov 2003 (version 3.12). When I checked the website today, the current version is >> 3.12 << believe it or not! Firewall software that's never been updated? No way!

    Regarding publisher website: Publisher is Armor2net, publisher website is < www.armor2net.com >. According to Web of Trust < www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/armor2net.com > this is an untrustworthy website, read the comments.

    Why are ppl still downloading this?

    "Good application to protect your machine."

    January 14, 2008

    Version: Armor2net Personal Firewall 3.12

    Pros

    You control what is allowed to access your machine. (programs, P2P, updates, etc.) It will not work with Vista in current form though. Or I was unable to install it on a machine reunning Vista.

    "P2p Champ!"

    January 06, 2008   |   By tipstir

    Version: Armor2net Personal Firewall 3.12

    Pros

    With this firewall you can have the best possible access to your p2p program you uses. Once you pass lock the app then it will do the rest. Listen and out the ports needed. When your done it will close them up. Other than that it's spyware and popup stopper does work where IE fails to do..

    Cons

    Can't be use on systems with more than one user login. If you do it will crash. So if you're the only one that uses the PC then you're okay. If not then this is not a firewall program for you.

    "HORRIBLE"

    December 02, 2007   |   By kyleraine

    Version: Armor2net Personal Firewall 3.12

    Pros

    it works

    Cons

    1. Confusing control panel. Instead of having all the tabs to the side it has this hard to see "I want to" on the bottom which you must press to see yet more options. It's really nutty and ugly.

    2. If explorer crashes kiss the system control icon goodbye!

    3. It finds imaginary spyware, and when it presents it to you will not tell you where it is. I told the programmer to put that feature in YEARS ago and he won't do it!

    4. Unless you turn off the hard to find button that says not to warn you about repeated outbound attempts the stupid icon flashes a pop up message repeatedly, and when u try to right click to turn it off the damned thing keeps popping it up as many times as a program tries to go outbound so you can never turn the damned message off!

    This is junkware people. It's junk. It hasn't been updated in years and whoever owns it shows no signs of any activity other then selling this gimmicky program. No one even makes skins for this thing probably because they know it's gimmickware.
