Security Software Programs / Re: WinPatrol Firewall Question

3rd party firewalls aren't only about controlling access to ports, they can also easily block/unblock programs/apps and even Services.

Most cost way less (I use a free one) than buying another router.

They can also be used away from base.

It works well with the Windows Firewall.
I see no reason at all for two software based firewalls. Enabling or disabling access through ports does not require any special, advanced or unique technique. So one or the other is just fine. But since Windows Firewall is already in there, I see no reason to waste disk space or system resources on a second.

If you want a second firewall, get a router that supports a hardware based firewall in the router.

I prefer GlassWire as a third party monitoring firewall.  It works well with the Windows Firewall. The visual aspects of the software makes it easy to see what is going on. There is a free or paid version.

Troy Hunt is a Microsoft Regional Director and MVP.  He is also the author of the "Have I Been Pwned?" website.  He is going to be testifying before Congress about data breaches.  Because his testimony had to be submitted ahead of time, he has published it on his blog:  Troy Hunt: Here's What I'm Telling US Congress about Data Breaches
