Creating a rule for the application

Similarly to the Application Control component, Firewall’s default feature is to use application statuses in order to define rules that will further be applied to network activity filtering.

If necessary, you can create network rules for applications using the Application Control component.

You can edit network rules for statuses, as well as create advanced rules for a more delicate filtering of network activity.

Custom rules for individual applications have a higher priority than the rules inherited from a status.

To create a rule for application:

  1. Open the application settings window.
  2. In the left part of the window, in the Protection Center section, select the Firewall component.
  3. Click the Settings button in the right part of the window.
  4. In the window that opens, on the Rules for applications tab, select an application and click the Configure link to open the rules configuration window.
  5. In the window that opens, on the Network rules tab, open the window for creating a network rule for the application by clicking the Add link.
  6. In the Network rule window that opens, specify the required settings.
  7. Assign a priority to the new rule by moving it up or down the list using the Move up and Move down links.

Once you have created the rule, you can modify its settings or delete it using links in the bottom part of the tab. To disable the rule, uncheck the box next to the rule’s name.
