Firewall rules

May 7, 2010

A firewall is a security system that uses rules to block or allow connections and data transmission between your computer and the Internet. Firewall rules control how the Smart Firewall protects your computer from malicious programs and unauthorized access. The firewall automatically checks all traffic that comes in or out of your computer against these rules.

The Smart Firewall uses two kinds of firewall rules:

Program rules Control Internet access for programs on your computer.
General rules Control all the incoming and the outgoing network traffic.
