OutPost vs Peerblock comparison

 

A firewall could be a piece of hardware or software that defends your computer or personal network from hackers and unauthorized traffic. However, some users try combining hardware and software firewalls to protect their computers and networks. In most cases, users choose to use only software firewalls to protect their systems and PCs. The reason for this choice is that the software firewalls can address the user's general security needs. ‌Besides, these firewalls cost much less than the hardware ones.

Every day more new software firewalls are marketed, so if you want to find the right firewall according to your preferences, you need to pay attention to the features of each one and compare them. In this article, we are going to compare two popular firewalls, OutPost vs Peerblock.

Conclusion:

You can run Both of the Peerblock and Outpost firewalls on either 32 or 64-bit versions of Windows. Neither Outpost nor Peerblock does not support any windows server.

 

PeerBlock is an entirely free and open-source product. You can use available blacklists on the internet or determine your IP blacklist to block. PeerBlock firewall blocks incoming and outgoing connections in/to the IP addresses subjected in the blacklist. It is a useful tool for torrent services. Furthermore, PeerBlock could be used as portable software. Thus you can run it without installing. Note that there is no new version of PeerBlock since 2014, and it seems that this firewall is discontinued.

 

Outpost Firewall is also completely free. It works 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 now discontinued and is not updated or supported from 2015..
