Little Snitch & Router's firewall vs. Murus

Post by msanta » Mon Dec 18, 2017 4:43 am

Right now I have Little Snitch and the router's firewall on to protect my Mac. If I install Murus, do I have to disable Little Snitch and turn off the router's firewall or can Murus work together with Little Snitch and the router's firewall? Apple's firewall is disabled, is Little Snitch and my ASUS firewall enough or I should just use strictly Murus? I t looks to me like Murus may be a better alternative tan the router's firewall or Little Snitch. Any advice will be deeply appreciated.

Personally, I am behind a router using both Murus and LS.

Murus (pf) works at network-layer while LittleSnitch works at application-layer, they do two different things so you can keep both.
Additionally, if you want you can try Vallum, a companion app for Murus which is exactly an alternative to Little Snitch. Vallum 2 is our current stable version but Vallum 3 will be available very soon :)
