GhostWall is a firewall which allows you to restrict the communications between your computer and others. Unlike other firewalls which have forgotten their main role, GhostWall is simply a firewall, mainly designed to replace the standard Microsoft firewall with better features and performance.

Easy to use and no network or computer slowdown


GhostWall in a lot of cases is the only real alternative to the built in Windows firewall!

* Ideal for low latency applications
* Doesn't impact online games (Counter-Strike, World of Warcraft, etc)
* Low resource and CPU use
* Shows blocked attacks and country of origin
* 64-bit (x64 / XP64) compatible
* Simple and easy to use

Firewall blocks virtual network board

Various Firewall products made available by third parties, block (in specific situations) the data transfer through the 'TAP-Win32 Adapter' virtual network board (configured while installing the CyberGhost client). If you can access the CyberGhost network after deactivating that firewall, try to fix the problem by adjusting the firewall settings, so you can use CyberGhost VPN without deactivating your firewall protection. The documentation, coming along with your firewall, should tell you how. Otherwise contact the respective distributor/developer. Note: Sometimes only deactivating a firewall is not enough and you better uninstall it temporary or at least restart the computer after deactivating.

Certain software or hardware firewalls also block the UDP data transfer to/from the CyberGhost servers. In such cases, you can remedy the situation by activating the ports '8078', '8080', '9081', and '9082'. The afferent functions are available in the firewall settings, respectively, in the router settings.

If certain Firewall problems cannot be solved, deactivating the Firewall for the 'TAP-Win32 Adapter' might be an option. Basically, this solution does not endanger your system, because it's just the CyberGhost VPN server, that's communicating with this adapter (the server and the client are authenticated based on certificates), and the CyberGhost-VPN server has its own Firewall functions.
