Windows 7: spi firewall + windows fire wall secure enough?

01 Feb 2015   #11

windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

There is a problem with windows 8 and wfc.
I've done the test with the app internet explorer and that notification works but with other apps there are problems.
For the standard apps there are default rules in the windows firewall there are no notifications needed but if the app use additional internet connections there is a problem.For example if the store app want to make un update of the app the update hangs: no connection and there is no notification: no sound and no popup in the desktop.
I've also tried the non-standard app radio and there is no sound: no connection and no notification of wfc.
I use wfc profile medium and notifications medium

I've never tried Win 8 so I suggest you email them or post in their thread at Wilders: Windows Firewall Control 4 | Page 53 | Wilders Security Forums

You could try temporarily to set Notifications to High or look in the Connections Log for blocked connections.

WFC doesn't detect connections itself. It depends on Windows Firewall detecting it in order to display a notification. So looking at the logs is the best way of troubleshooting I think.

I've set notifications on high and now there was a was a notification popup (which means it uses svchost) for the use of the radio but not yet sound.I've checked sound and there were no incomming connections blocked.So the problem must not be wfc
