"Just like Sygate, simple and effective"

October 31, 2010  |  By edudesouza

 |  Version: Windows 7 Firewall 64-bit Control 3.5

Pros

Simple to use, light weight. It monitors all incoming and out-coming connections. The best replacement for Sygate. Win 7 firewall is great but lacks on monitoring, and requesting you permission to enable softwares to access the Internet.

Cons

It doesn´t have a detailed log.

Summary

The best replacement for Sygate in Windows 7

"Exactly what I've been looking for"

October 05, 2010  |  By lanquihue

 |  Version: Windows 7 Firewall 64-bit Control 3.5

Pros

So easy to set up and use

Cons

None that I can see

Summary

It seems that every firewall I tried either crashed my computer, or asked me questions so often, often with cryptic messages I didn't even understand. This one is not a firewall, it simply gives you more control over the Windows firewall. It asked me several questions initially about several programs wanting access to the Internet without all the cryptic crap, and a couple hours later we're good. If I feel like I made the wrong choice, the really simple interface lets me change anything that I've already done. This one is just the ticket, so simple, and I can't say enough about it.

"Easy to use, stable, effective"

August 20, 2010  |  By sfschenck

 |  Version: Windows 7 Firewall 64-bit Control 3.5

Pros

Sphinx Firewall Control not only makes Windows Firewall configuration easy, it also actively monitors connection attempts and prompts you the first time any program attempts to get access to the network or internet and you can allow or deny.

Cons

I have used this in Vista and 7, 32 and 64 bit, and can't find anything I dislike. It is a simple, basic program however, and some people might want more configurability.

Summary

I like the fact that it tells me what the external IP is that the program is attempting to connect to. Sometimes it's not clear what the program is, or if I should allow it. For example "Windows Host Process"- I'm sure there are several things running under this but I don't know what! I like that it is so simple and doesn't try to be all things to all people (like Symantec and McAfee). I had a question once, and their tech support responded more quickly than most paid software companies do!

"Surprisingly good"

August 01, 2010  |  By wolverine486

 |  Version: Windows 7 Firewall 64-bit Control 3.5

Pros

-Lite on system
-Stops what it needs to

Cons

I'm not sure whether I configured it correctly or not, but whenever I launch a program that connects to the internet, it shuts the connection off to that program until I allow it. Once I allow it I then have to re-open the program (usually browser).

Summary

Works how it should, lite weight only con is what I said above. Not a really big con mind you.

"Works Great On Windows 7 64 bit"

April 27, 2010  |  By TheOutlawDad

 |  Version: Windows 7 Firewall 64-bit Control 3.5

Pros

If you want a program to stop programs in your computer from phoneing home this is it. Lets you set each program as you like. Reminds me of the way Sygate worked This is the best replacement I have found for Sygate.

Cons

Nothing, it's a simple interface

Summary

Works great, No ads or junk, It learns as you teach it, This is the closes you will find to Sygate, So if your a sygate user, this is for you. Sygate does not load on Vista or Win 7, there is also 32 bit version here on Cnet
