Windows Firewall Control,軟體教學,軟體下載,電腦問題,電腦教學
Windows Firewall Control 是一個功能強大的軟件,它擴展了 Windows 防火牆的功能,並提供了新的額外功能,使 Windows 防火牆更好。它運行在系統托盤中,允許用戶輕鬆控製本機防火牆,而不必浪費時間瀏覽到防火牆的特定部分。這是從 Windows 10,8.1,8,7,Vista,Server 2008,Server 2012 管理本機防火牆的最佳工具。Windows Firewall Control 提供四種過濾模式,只需單擊鼠標即可切換:

高過濾 - 所有出站和入站連接被阻塞。此配置文件阻止所有連接到您的計算機的嘗試。
Medium Filtering - 與規則不匹配的出站連接被阻止。只有您允許的程序才能啟動出站連接。
低過濾 - 出站連接不符合規則是允許的。用戶可以阻止他不希望啟動出站連接的程序。
否篩選 - Windows 防火牆已關閉。避免使用此設置,除非您的計算機上正在運行其他防火牆。

Windows Firewall Control 不會執行任何包過濾,也不會阻止或允許任何連接。這由 Windows 防火牆本身根據現有防火牆規則完成.

注意:需要 Microsoft .NET Framework 版本 4.5 或更高版本。 Windows 防火牆服務需要啟用 Windows Firewall Control 才能運行。需要啟用 DNS 客戶端服務以使通知正常工作。通知系統在未註冊的版本中被禁用.
