How to create general system rules in the firewall


In addition to creating specific rules for the programs installed, the firewall lets you create rules applicable to all the PC communications. These rules will have priority over the rules that you have established for the programs installed.


The general system rules let you open or close certain communication ports, allow or deny communications with computers with a certain IP address, etc.


You can create a general system rule, or configure an existing one, by following these instructions:

  1. Click Status in the main menu.

  2. In the Protection section, click Settings.

  3. Select the Firewall option.

  4. In the Rules section, click Settings to define the ports and protocols that your PC can use to communicate.

  5. Click Add to create a new rule, or Settings to edit an existing rule.

Add or configure general system rules (+ Information)


This window contains the list of rules you have created and it lets you establish the priority with which the rules will be applied. You can order them using the Up and Down buttons. The rule in the first place in the list will have priority over the rule in second place, and so on.

If you want to recover the original settings, click Restore.

  1. Once you have made the changes you want, click on  OK.
