No downloadable manual. I am old school, I print manuals out, I then write on them, high light passages etc, especially when I am learning how software like this works. I gave up on trying to read the manual on line, so although I paid for the software its unlikely to be used. I don't care if it becomes out of date in 6 months, by that stage I will have a good enough grasp on the software to either figure it out, look at the online version for the specific changes or download a new copy of the manual. THIS is how I learn stuff. Its crazy, they make PDF manuals for their other software, just not for their main product. So now I am looking for some firewall software yet again. Maybe I will have to pay for a hardware firewall so I can get a manual.

It would be enormously helpful if MU carried screen shots of the various Murus products so we could see what they actually do (the screenshot on the developer's site is too small to be legible).

I had been looking for a product to prevent Chinese hackers from constantly attempting brute force SSH logins on one of my workstations (I have to keep SSH enabled on it for a security application that I run). I tried Fail2Ban first, and had no luck getting it running on El Capitan. Then I ran across this product, gave the Lite version a try, and immediately bought the Pro version. Murus works, it's easy to configure, and the documentation is quite good. Now I can watch as Chinese IP addresses bang on port 22 a few times and then get locked out for good. The Pro version is worth every penny I spent just for that alone.

How well does this play with Little Snitch being also installed?

This front end to the firewall has excellent documentation online also. ' am switching from IceFloor to Murus. Just bought Murus Basic from their website http://www.murusfirewall.com Pricing is slashed 50% for a short time, so I got it for just $10. Thanks Murus!

It is just amazing that thanks to this tool I now have a quick and user friendly way to leverage the firewall that is already at the core of Mac OS X. Great job Murus team! NB! At the moment, a more advanced version of this tool, Murus Basic, is on sale with 50% off! Personally, I have bought Murus Pro that in addition to even more features also includes Murus Logs Visualizer. DISCLAIMER: I am not affiliated with Murus and simply would love to promote them.

Very good, except totally blocking everything at the beginning. Need sometime to figure it out but definitely good!

Is there any reason why Murus Lite cannot be made to work with versions of OS X earlier than Mavericks? Of course, I am assuming that all OS X versions have always had some kind of a built-in firewall feature and are configurable, but I'm not sure what's so special about Mavericks or Yosemite that requires this app to work specifically for those versions. Or is this more to do with the version of Xcode that the developer has which doesn't quite provide backward compatibility for older OS X versions? Anyway, I'll give it a generous 3.5 star rating (better than average) just for the fact that any app that can make life easier to configure the in-built firewall without any form of manual programming and coding skills is a godsend in my books. I'll definitely give it a higher rating once the app has more backward compatibility with older OS X versions (assuming it is even vaguely possible). Thanks

This is not a firewall. It's another app/script to configure and control the built-in firewall for OS X. None of these apps like Waterroof and Icefloor are firewalls. They just work with the built-in one.

Great software by a commited developer who already developed the best firewalls for many versions of OS X before.
