SterJo NetStalker is innovative and FREE security software able to detect all authorized and unauthorized connections to your computer and send you alert for each new connection.

The software is based on similar principles as most firewalls work and also could create a custom security policies with an advantage to run it totally portable. It serves as an entry point into your computer and instantly informs you about all the processes able to establish a connection with an external network.

If making an analysis of all open ports on your system with a standard port scanner would take a few minutes, with this program it would be done only in a few milliseconds. This is also quite powerful software for making analysis of all running processes on your system as well as those that look suspicious.

The program offers an option to display details about all connections and closing individual connection or entire process.

If you are one of those who want to know exactly where your connections are targeted then this program is the ideal solution for you.

P.S. Does this need admin rights? I can't test this now...

Yes, it requires admin rights.

Does not work on my 7.64 machine. Error message:
2013-04-01_094355.jpg

Clicking OK, kills the application. Also, puts comctl32.ocx in Windows\SysWOW64.

That error is Sandboxie's fault. After hitting OK, run the app a second time.
And what if we place the file comctl32.ocx in the app's directory?

It is in the apps folder. comctl32.ocx is included in the .zip package.

SterJo NetStalker seems to be an almost unique app, a portable firewall, fully configurable with regard to inbound TCP connections, and with pop-up dialogs to trust (or otherwise) outbound connections.

It does (rather well!) what it says on the tin: http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2510

Upon release of NetStalker v1.2 (no changelog), here's a small wishlist:
  • - some changelog, for obvious reasons;
    - NetStalker should abide manually set column widths, instead of resetting them on refresh as it currently does;
    - The 'CTRL+H' keyboard shortcut is displayed as assigned to "Copy Remote Address" in the context menu, but it launches "Resolve Host" instead;
    - An option to search/submit executables to Virustotal -- it currently only uses Google;
    - Netstalker is currently failing to show file properties for Windows system files, even when run with administrative privileges;
    - A setting to (automatically) resolve hosts in processes listing;
    - Configurable plain text export/logging of processes listing.
FYI, NetStalker seems to be running alright on Windows 7 x64 SP1.

Like other runtimes, 'comctl32.ocx' can be considered a system component -- in the same light as DotNET, for instance...

Does it work if you move it back to program folder?

:octopus: :head_bandage:

Can't win them all...

EDIT: How about registering the file in place through 'regsvr32'?

If this can be accepted as portable then ok
Although programs without those kinds of requirements are certainly MORE portable, it's not against policy. We can just list it in the entry.

Yeah, that's an option, too. :thumbsup:
