"#1 choice for the paranoid user's IT-toolbox!"

November 30, 2009  |  By snurrberget

 |  Version: Tiny Personal Firewall 6.5

Pros

This nifty application lets you monitor (in detail) the communication between processes running on your PC and the outside world.
And, it has a very nice userinterface!
So if youre wondering if "something" has hijacked you PC, this is it.

Cons

I would love something like wireshark (ethereal) integrated with this product, so you can actually rip the contents of a suspicious connection.

"Tried it. Wiped it. A Dirty Program."

June 05, 2009  |  By scoee

 |  Version: Tiny Personal Firewall 6.5

Pros

Very effective firewall. Could be up there with the best except for some MAJOR problems.

Cons

On 3 diffent PC's. Same problems occured.
1. Random shutdowns.
2. C: router problems. Whatever this is.
3. Difficult to learn and somewhat unsupported in the Help regions.

Summary

Bug detected in the download, but maybe it was a false positive, or could be the cause of the random shut-downs. Would not install after bug cleaned so reinstated it. Sorry I did.

TPF 6.5 is dangerous on my PC's. Unstable, and too many ***? issues.

Try the TPF2 - 2.0.14 free version (2001 version?). Not too bad and extremely simple, but had one PC randomly shut down within the first few days, but 2 Weeks later, all OK. Has lots of easy to configure stuff too. Not sure yet if it is good, excellent or whatever.

Still can't beat the very annoying but very powerful free Comodo FW for protection

"It Was Good Before"

November 28, 2007  |  By gway17

 |  Version: Tiny Personal Firewall 6.5

Pros

At first it seemed to be a pain. Then I realized that If it seemed irritating, it was because it was doing what it was designed to do.

It worked well for a long time and did a very good job.

Now, there must be holes that a virus can get thru as I've had several that "ride" in on my TPF. Turned off TPF and I haven't had any more problems.

Too bad as it was a nice little product.

Cons

Seems to no longer block the bad stuff.

A bit pricey for what it does.

"Decent but not fully functional"

January 22, 2007  |  By warspartan

 |  Version: Tiny Personal Firewall 6.5

Pros

This is a small download and I think it still works unsupported.

Cons

you can't access anything on it, it just runs and there are no viruses, if just will make a lousy computer crash, because, its lousy. Completely safe and if you don't believe me scan it! its that easy!

"Excellent but requires effort. Sadly, it is virtually unsupported."

August 16, 2006  |  By ITsource

 |  Version: Tiny Personal Firewall 6.5

Pros

If you spend the time to learn the full functionality of this product, you will grow to appreciate what makes this firewall powerful in the extreme and be rewarded with excellent intrusion prevention for your Windows or Windows Server run PC.

Cons

Will initially ask permission for everything that happens on your system, which can become annoying even for experienced users. This product is virtually unsupported since the acquisition of Tiny Software by Computer Associates.
