G DATA Security Client Firewall - Advanced Rule Set Editor

The Advanced Rule Set Editor allows for the creation of highly specific rules. It can be used to create all of the rules that are also available through the Rule Wizard, but also supports custom settings.

The Advanced Rule Set Editor window resembles the Rule sets pane of G DATA Administrator's Firewall module. It can be used to create, edit, delete, and rank rules within the rule set. In addition to the options available in G DATA Administrator, the Advanced Rule Set Editor offers the followingoptions:

  • Action if no rule applies: Specify what happens when no existing rule applies to a filtered communication type: Allow, Deny or Ask user.
  • Adaptive mode: The adaptive mode supports applications that use feedback channel technology (e.g. FTP and numerous online games). These applications connect to a remote computer and negotiate a feedback channel with it, which the remote computer then uses to reverse connect to the application. If the adaptive mode is enabled, the firewall detects this feedback channel and permits it without querying it separately.
  • Reset: Delete all rule set modifications as well as all auto-learned rules.

By double-clicking a rule or clicking the Edit button, individual rules can be edited. The individual rule editor corresponds to the Edit rule window in G DATA Administrator.
