I decided to try this firewall after removing Glasswire firewall. Evorim Free Firewall had non stop pop ups going and caused internet connection issues via router Asus ROG router. My VPN would no longer connect even when I exited out of this firewall. After much time troubleshooting doe to my VPN issue and other programs not working, I decided to try removing this firewall and see if this was the issue. After removing this firewall all my programs worked and no more connection issues and yes I did set the permissions.
The Evorim firewall works flawlessly. As expected. A worthy alternative to Private Firewall which is no longer available.
