I've had excellent results from ZoneAlarm's Free Firewall. Many people complain about the number of popups it has when first installed but, once it gets "trained" (generally, in a month or so) the number of popups drop dramatically.

Ok, so here is what I am looking for. A firewall software which will keep monitoring the network and show in it's log all the incoming and outgoing connections. Something similar to what Fiddler does showing all the connections but with blocking capabilities.

Example - When I login to Skype, I see a lot of ads. Now the program should show the list of all the connections and I should be able to block the respective ad domain. I know there is Adguard but I am looking for some network monitoring software with blocking functionality similar to Netpeeker.

From everything you have explained in this thread, given what is available today GlassWire may be your best

option. Good Luck with your search.

 

 

 

You guys must check out NetPeeker. It shows the domain names of the connections. Through Glasswire, you cannot know which host is from an ad domain and which one is not.

LOL. Dude, please read my first post. I am not looking for an A/V program here or one through which I can block whole websites.

What is your system?...generaly I wolud recomend Outpost 2009 Free or PC Tools FW (based on Look'n'nStop technology) - both in HIPS module...or Tinywall without it.

I use TcpLogView to monitor connections
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/tcp_log_view.html
and COMODO Firewall to block programs
https://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/firewall.php

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!

 

If you use Killswitch you can see the address names.
