A wonderful tinywall and really small.
Is it possible to make it portable?

Thanks for the post ... there's a bit on it from Lifehacker:
http://lifehacker.com/5871548/tinywall- ... or-windows

Site seems to be offline...
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/F ... Wall.shtml

According to Softpedia, it requires dotNET 3.5 but FreewareGenius mentions that it "does not install drivers or kernel-components of its own." Might qualify as portable.

Thanks,
Tried to install tinywall on win_to_go RP without success.
I installed it on win7, copied the tinywall folder to win_to_go and worked ok.
Popup message "tinywall, database is missing or corrupt" shows only at start up.
Pcflank quick test: visible ports(135,137,138,139)
Shieldup test: all ports are stealth, except port 113 (closed)
Not sure which one is correct?

Firewalls are deeply integrated into the OS.
Not a good idea..

- TinyWall requires .Net Framework
- installs a service
- installs startup entries
- runs in the background

I did not test the quality.. as it's not really it's own firewall but just enhances Windows Firewall by adding features, GUI, menus, etc.
Windows Firewall did look more useable with TinyWall.
If you're going the freeware/minimal route, it might be something to check out.
From what i hear.. Windows Firewall is quite good.. it's just most people don't use it or care for it.

I don't think it makes much sense to make a firewall portable. But, technically not a lot is missing to support it, so let me know if anyone would find it useful. Depending on the demand, I might invest some work into it.

Topic update: Tinywall v3.0.2 released, dated 2020-03-26 (changelog at https://tinywall.pados.hu/changelog.txt).

TinyWall is a lightweight, user-friendly, and secure firewall for Windows. It is also completely free.

Some third party reviews of Tinywall v3.x:
The latest release of Tinywall (currently v3.0.2) can be freely doenloaded from https://tinywall.pados.hu/download.php.

This new Tinywall version is now a self-contained freeware but sadly not natively portable -- whic is quite understandable if you take its purpose into account -- so I'm pushing the whole topic to "Not portable".

For other options, check viewtopic.php?t=17378.
