|Description||Protect your server from intrusion. When you run a server on your machine, it uses "ports" to allow other machines to connect to it. You might be running the server just for internal use, yet there's no easy way to stop someone outside from accessing the server.
AnalogX PortBlocker lets you block the Internet port of most servers, making them unreachable to other computers on the Internet. In addition to blocking your ports, you can log any access attempts made by other machines. The program is configured to block the most common types of servers, so it will not require any modification for most users. However, if you are running a server that isn't listed, you can still specify to have its ports blocked.
The author of this program emphasizes that this program isn't sufficient to act as a fully protective firewall, but it will allow you to run a server that is only available on the local network.
