I’m used to using the TrackerControl app on my phone. This application is convenient and multifunctional.

Is there something similar for windows?

    Windows comes with quite the advanced firewall built in. Why not use that?

        Yes, Windows 7 too.

      The built in firewall is proprietary, which is enough of a reason to prefer a free software alternative.

        What’s the point? Any free software alternatives will still rely on the proprietary TCP/IP stack in Windows.

          The point of software freedom is, and has been for the last 40 years, the four freedoms. Replacing proprietary software with a free alternative is always worth it, in my opinion.

          Sure, ideally the entire operating system would be replaced with a free alternative, but not everyone is willing or able to make such a big change right out of the gate. Windows users deserve freedom, too. The FSF calls this “climbing the freedom ladder”.
