Hi, I was wondering if GlassWire Pro proper as a firewall for game server hosting on Windows?
Thanks for considering using GlassWire. Are you hosting your game locally or on a remote server?
You can use GlassWire to monitor the server’s network activity in detail, and allow/deny connections. Our user guide is here GlassWire Network Security Monitor & Firewall Help.
Our software comes with a free trial if you want to give it a try.
If your gaming server is lightly loaded then it might work OK to use GlassWire. But a heavily loaded server could bog down more quickly when GlassWire running and network throughput increases…
The better solution is usually to run a separate proxy firewall on a dedicated server. So your game would have a dedicated server and any application-level filtering and inspection can also be handled by another computer. But, if you don’t have the money to do run a separate server then GlassWire could be a useful option .
