Windows Firewall Control


Recommended Posts

Microsoft Windows have already built-in default, free and powerful firewalls, but unfortunately, they lack a simple interface to define own simple rules and can be difficult sometimes to configure them the right way. Windows Firewall Control is a nifty little application which extends the functionality of the Windows Firewall and provides quick access to the most frequent options of Windows Firewall. It runs in the system tray and allows user to control the native firewall easily without having to waste time by navigating to the specific part of the firewall. Windows Firewall Control offers four filtering modes which can be switched with just a mouse click. WFC is free to use, registered users will get the advantage of learning mode which provides notifications for outgoing blocked connections.

Thanks to Engh3. for the update.

What's new:
- New: Updated the filters in Recently Blocked window to be able to display also recently blocked inbound connections.
- New: Added a new override checkbox in the Properties dialog of a rule which can disable temporarily the validation for the remote IP addresses field. This is useful when the validation for IPv6 can't be validated by the WFC internal rules but the input is correct.
- Updated: The CheckBox template was changed to RadioButton template for the "Play default sound" and "Play custom sound" options in the Notifications tab.
- Updated: Reduced the size of the installer by 20%

Installation notes: Just use the updater to update to the new files. That's all.

Other notes: About the new override function for remote IP addresses. If you activate this checkbox you can input also a wrong input. In this scenario, even if you press on the Apply button the rule will appear to be modified. Press on the Refresh button to reload the rules. If everything was ok, then the new value was saved and will be displayed. If the input was wrong, then it was rejected by the Windows Firewall API and the old value was not updated. In this case, after you Refresh the rules list, the old value will be displayed. The last valid value.
