Hello folks, I would like to know some good firewall software for Windows that will show me all the network connections in it's log and will allow me to block the domains. I am particularly looking for one which will show me connections in this format:

 

tpc.googlesyndication.com

googleads.g.doubleclick.net

ssl.google-analytics.com

 

from not just web browsers but system wide network log. Are there any such firewalls? Thanks!

I use TcpLogView to monitor connections

and COMODO Firewall to block programs

Thank you! I have tried TcpLogView and it is close to displaying what I want but not there yet. The reason being that it displays the host names rather than the DNS name as seen in the screenshot below

The top portion is the screenshot from another firewall called NetPeeker and the bottom one is from TcpLogView. You will understand what I mean when you look under the RemoteIP column. Both are the logs taken after opening www.google.com but see the difference. I am looking for something similar to screenshot 1 above.

 

Are there any programs which will sniff the network and show me the output in this format (as seen in the top portion of the screenshot)? Basically, I need to monitor and block the unwanted individual connections.

 

Thanks!

Take a look at Sphinx firewall. Ignore "Vista" in name. http://vistafirewallcontrol.freeforums.org/
