harden the Windows firewall TinyWall is an add-on to the advanced firewall that comes built-in with Windows 7 and Vista. It is designed to harden the firewall protection and provide you with easy to use configuration options that do not require constant pop-ups or complicated rule settings. TinyWall comes with built-in rules that, by default, will block most incoming or outgoing connections. You can use the Whitelist features to manually allow applications, or you can use the learning mode, which will temporarily allow all traffic and automatically add the exclusions for you. TinyWall also comes with an option to unblock all LAN traffic, which will restrict incoming and outgoing Internet traffic according to your settings but allow all local network traffic. This feature can be very handy if you have a lot of applications that communicate across your home or office network. Other features include an option to password protect the settings, firewall tampering protection, block-all mode, integrated malware block list, temporary exclusions, IPv6 support, and more. Keep in mind that TinyWall is not a standalone firewall! It acts as a front-end to the built-in Windows firewall and makes it more effective and easier to control. There are no additional drivers or protection layers to install and everything tightly integrates with your Windows system.
