Conclusion:

Both of the NetDefender and Outpost firewalls could run on either 32 or 64-bit versions of Windows, and none of them supports windows servers.

 

NetDefender is an open-source and entirely free firewall. It is officially designed as a preliminary firewall only for Windows XP and 2000, but it works well on Windows 7 and 8. Note that the NetDefender firewall is not supported anymore by its developers.

 

Outpost Firewall is also completely free. You can run it on all Windows versions from XP to 10. Note that the latest version of the Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro is version 9.3. It is is not updated or supported since 2015 and now is discontinued.
