Thanks JLogan3o13, I check your UDF but I don't understand how you can listen the data ports ?

for example, I'd like to know what are the datas I get or I send, to know if it's an normal activity or if it's one of hacker.

If someone check all my ports, I want block this IP also, ...

Writing a firewall is not an easy task. Writing it in AutoIt would be impractical as the program would run slowly and would impact your system performance.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

@franpol38000 I apologize, I misread your initial post; I thought you were looking to control a FW not make one. I would agree wholeheartedly with BrewManNH; to be able to write your own firewall is going to take a language better suited to the task than AutoIt. It is also going to take a high degree of skill and understanding of how data flows in and out of the machine; it isn't exactly a weekend project that anyone can sit down and script out.

Thanks for yours answers. Which language will be better for this kind of project ?

I can guess it's not easy to do it and it will takes lot of time to understand everything, but I really want do it by myself.

People said to me to use Wireshark with tcpdump command, but I don't want be an user of software. I want understand how we can do this.

I would suggest C++/C in order to do it.

AutoIt is limited and therefore won't be able to do this (especially since multithreading is not supported, the firewall will be very slow).

@franpol38000,

i just stumbled upon this:

if you want a basic TCP monitoring script than can close undesired connections, you will probably find it interesting. at least it will give you some notion on how to go about it.
