Like iptables or ipfw?

I've tried wipfw but it doesn't work on windows 7 (at least not for me).

Pretty much any firewall lets you do this, from my experience. – Sasha Chedygov Aug 4 '10 at 8:04

Depends how complicated you're intending to make these rules, but I've found the built in Windows 7 firewall to be sufficent.

Just make sure you are accessing the "Advanced Security" version and you can set port blocking / program blocking / etc, both for in- and out-bound connections.

I think you'll find in under:
Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security
Or possibly by sticking wf.msc in to the run box.

Ah that might be what I need, I'll check it out – glisignoli Aug 4 '10 at 8:03
Wow that does exactly what I want, except I have about 200 ip addresses I need to add, hopefully there is some way to import these? – glisignoli Aug 4 '10 at 8:06
Nevermind!… Awesome! – glisignoli Aug 4 '10 at 8:08

You can use fireBwall, which I develop.

It allows you to write your own modules for filtering packets in C#, allowing for the firewall to do exactly what you want it to do.

Yes there is. It's called Comodo Firewall. The settings are really straight forward and easy to use and plus its free :)
