"Good light weight rule based firewall."

October 04, 2006  |  By the_warden

 |  Version: SoftPerfect Personal Firewall 1.4

Pros

Low hard drive and RAM usage. Gets the job done.

Cons

The application is not for the average user. Definitely for technical users that know how firewall rules and networking works. Lacks email protection and malicious web scanning protection.

"Good light-weight, rule-based, firewall"

December 08, 2005  |  By ferret_face

 |  Version: SoftPerfect Personal Firewall 1.4

Pros

- Good set of default rules.

- Light-weight: doesn't chew up a bunch of resources under Win9x (I tested with under Win98).

- Can block using MAC / hardware address.

Cons

- Learning mode can be confusing because you don't know what all the ports are for.

- Cannot resolve IP addressess (don't know who's connecting to your computer)

- Cannot determine which application is sending or receiving (no application rules)
