I tested Outpost Firewall Pro yesterday.
It installs without complaining about server and runs without any obvious problems.
I ran Comodo´s LeakTest (CLT), and got 290 / 330.
Emsisoft AntiMalware (EAM) also blocked several leaks that Outpost missed, resulting in a better total result.
I was a bit tired when i ran those tests so i´m going to reinstall Outpost,
both versions (Firewall Pro and Outpost Free Suite), and doublecheck what they fail to block,
i will also run some other leaktests, posting results later.
But looking at Matousec, http://www.matousec.com/projects/proactive-security-challenge-64/results.php,
a much tougher test than CLT, it seems that the “best” firewall that runs on WS2012 is Outpost….
Private Firewall also performed well, but it isn´t W8-compatible yet, (there is a thread about that over at wilders-forum which i checked yesterday), and Kaspersky doesn´t like server-O/S.
So if you want a good firewall with HIPS that runs on WS2012, take a look at Outpost:
It would be interesting to hear what other members think about Outpost firewall,
so if someone else could install it and run some leaktest would be nice….
