Thanks for the info
Thanks :Thumb:
thanks basic but good firewall rarely causes problems
An Oldie but Goodie, for XP - but then, other than for "leaktest" issues, firewalls don't date that quickly - wonder how it would fare against Matousec.
The graphing in Sygate is one of it's best features, pretty sure it also has a traffic indicating icon.

Private Firewall scores VERY well against Matousec's leaktests, and is good for XP to Win8 (and is free)

Looks like Sygate never got tested, as it wasn't current, but does have some features (Anti application hijacking, DLL Authentication) that would resist some of the leaktests.

NB. Matousec's tests primarily end up measuring HIPS type protection, behaviour blocking, stopping potentially malicious actions by something not actually identified as such.
