Turn off a General rule temporarily

May 18, 2010

You can temporarily turn off a general rule if you need to allow specific access to a computer or a program. You must remember to turn on the rule again when you are done working with the program or computer that required the change.


You cannot turn off some of the default firewall rules that appear in the list. You can only view the settings of these rules by using the View option.
To turn off a General rule temporarily
  1. In the Norton Internet Security main window, in the Network pane, click Settings.
  2. Under Smart Firewall, in the Advanced Settings row, click Configure.

    You may need to scroll the window to see the option.
  3. In the Advanced Settings window, in the General Rules row, click Configure.
  4. In the General Rules window, uncheck the box next to the rule you want to turn off.
  5. Click OK.
  6. In the Advanced Settings window, click OK
