Configuring the firewall security level


The Panda Antivirus Pro 2010 firewall can adapt your protection depending on the type of network to which your PC is connected.


The increasing number of laptop computers and the options for using these on a variety of network environments means firewall protection should be able to adapt to the different types of network to which you might connect.


For example, an Internet connection through a wireless network in an airport, requires a different security policy from a connection on a local network.


Even though, by default, the firewall applies a different security level in accordance with the type of network to which you connect, you can change this configuration whenever you want.

To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Click Status in the main menu.

  2. In the Protection section, click Settings.

  3. Select the Firewall option.

  4. In the Networks section, click Settings.

  5. Select a network, if there is more than one, and indicate the name with which you want to identify it. Click Settings.

Note: If you click on Details you can see the name of the network card used for the connection, the IP address, the gateway, the DNS servers, etc.

  1. Specify whether it is a trusted location or a public location.
