    We @ Tweakbytes.com are very pleased to announce our BiniSoft Windows Firewall Control Giveaway!


    [​IMG]


    We would like to thank Mr. Alexandru Dicu of BiniSoft for his kind generosity for sponsoring us in this giveaway.



    Overview

    BiniSoft's Windows Firewall Control
    is a powerful software which extends the functionality of Windows Firewall and provides new extra features which makes Windows Firewall even better. It runs in the system tray and allows the user to control the native firewall easily without having to waste time by navigating to the specific part of the firewall. This is the best tool to manage the native firewall from Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista, Server 2008, Server 2012. Windows Firewall Control offers four filtering modes which can be switched with just a mouse click:

    High Filtering

    All outbound and inbound connections are blocked. This profile blocks all attempts to connect to and from your computer.

    Medium Filtering

    Outbound connections that do not match a rule are blocked. Only the programs that you allow can initiate outbound connections.

    Low Filtering
    Outbound connections that do not match a rule are allowed. The user can block the programs he doesn't want to allow initiating outbound connections.

    No Filtering

    Windows Firewall is turned off. Avoid using this setting unless you have another firewall running on your computer.

    Windows Firewall Control doesn't do any packet filtering and does not block or allow any connection. This is done by Windows Firewall itself based on the existing firewall rules.

    An activation code works only for a specific Installation ID of a machine/system. Thus your activation code can only be used on the machine/system from which the unique Installation ID belongs.

    The activation status will remain activated as long as the Installation ID remains unchanged.

    If the operating system (OS) you are using is reinstalled or upgraded to a newer version the "Installation ID" of that machine/system changes thus the given Activation Code given will not work anymore.

    Thanks a lot for the giveaway, jasonX. :) I really like this software as i read a lot of good reviews about it on the internet and i want to encourage the development of this excellent software and show some support for the romanian developers and our forum.
    As for the question you posted above:
    WHY do you want to use BiniSoft Windows Firewall Control alongside the built-in Windows Firewall?

    I want to use this software in order to better control the in-built firewall from Microsoft for an exhanced security and management of such firewall. For me it is important to control each and every rule for any application as i want to have a full control of everything that connects to the internet and with a single click to allow or block it.
    Below my share:

    I also followed their youtube channel.
    Best of luck to all the participants,
    :joy:
