The interface looks Pre-Win95, possibly the worst looking program in the entire world.

But it's the best firewall on earth, does not hold your hand though, worth every penny, the free PrivateFirewall is also very good.

Very light, strong and stable a little software firewall.
This is really great piece of software, definitely worth to try.

WOW!!! i must say i'm impressed! i've been looking for a good firewall for a while, but all of them have major issues, commodo firewall has the strongest protection, but is a huge resource hog and causes a major slow down in my internet connection speed, i tried other firewalls but most of them are buggy or resource hogs or slow down the connection or do not provide a decent protection for the connection... i would say, if compared to 'bittorrent' apps, this is the 'uTorrent' of firewalls, very very light on resource, simple well built interface and strong protection.. i would say commodo is more of an 'Azureus', heavy on resource and has bugs, but may appeal to users with very strong pc's who want more options... but for me, this is the firewall of choice.

After having downloaded this program which looks to be a great help for computer owners I decided to buy it I payed using Paypal , $55.dollars,or in my case £28. poungs sterling I was promised that after payment I would be emailed a serial number which would allow for full activation which I never got just a load of bumpf ,
My advice to anyone out there is dont waste your money or your time you will only get ripped off,I tried to email the said company but my emails were all returned to me as if they had been blocked I,m afraid its just a case of TAKE YOUR MONEY AND RUN.

I just goes to show how little resources something really needs when written propely and to do the job it's designed to do. No more 30-50meg memory usage and stealling bandwidth that other firewalls do.

Wonderful little app. Doesnt use much resources yet very powerful if you know what you are doing, even if you are not very educated in the ins and outs of protocols and stuff you can handle this. If something is blocked you can create a rule from the log windows easily.

I bought this app a couple of years ago but then came comodo. But since Comodo doesnt work with Vista yet I revisited Look´n´stop and it all came back to me :)

When Comodo is Vista ready (now with Boclean) it will be a tuff choice to make.

If you dont care for all the blingbling and only want a firewall with application control only, this one is for you. Robust and stable and does its job without any hassle. I have used the both latest betas on Vista and they work very well, no problems at all.

Its really a firewall as it should be ,as is supposed ,not a popup blocker or ad hunter or scropt blocker ,you can do them with your browser and your anti-virus .a good written application .

Bon pare-feu, efficace, complet, ne ralentissant pas votre connexion Internet et qui plus est consommant très peu de ressources.

Ne pas oublier cependant que Look'n'Stop est un pare-feu utilisant un jeu de règles (numéro des ports etc.) assez difficile (pour un novice) à personnaliser.

Ensuite si vous êtes sur les réseaux d'échange, certains fonctionnalités comme le contôle des paquets sont incompatibles à la différence d'Outpost... mais celui-ci est une vraie usine à gaz, donc...

I am running the final version of Look 'n' Stop (LNS) 2.05, not the beta. It works quite well. I have had bizarre problems with settings being remembered occasionally, and one crash of LNS itself, but no system problems whatsoever.

The strengths of LNS, as I see it: Good support from the author, unlike 99.99% of other firewalls out there (free clue: support matters!); very good performance in leak tests; very, very light on memory usage and CPU time (so much better than most firewalls in this respect, in fact, that it's completely laughable); good rule configurability (ability to specify TCP, UDP, TCP and UDP, ARP, MAC address targets, and a "raw" rule-creation mode available via a free plug-in that will make your head spin).

I am very close to giving LNS a 5-star rating. However, one thing that keeps me from doing so is the fact that it limits the number of applications that can be monitored, as well as the maximum number of simultaneous connections that can be used with stateful packet inspection, to 128 each. This means that if you have a great deal of applications, you can't control their outbound behavior, and if you use P2P, you cannot use SPI (unless you severely limit connections).

Using it for two days, and no big problems at all. No BSOD.

Just hope that a Beta2 or a 2.05 final will be out soon !

other than windows xp being lame and throwing a fit over the unsigning, I can only think of advanatages for it being a low level driver

I think it's a very good firewall (better than many others). Didn't find any bug, even in this beta release.
I really like the way to enter internet filtering rules.
