Add Traffic rules and Program rules

Program Control automatically creates most of the firewall rules that you need. You can add custom rules if necessary.

Only experienced users should create their own firewall rules.

You can add the following types of firewall rules:

  • Traffic rules

  • Program rules

Add a Traffic rule

  1. In the Norton main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, click Firewall.

  3. On the Traffic Rules tab, click Add.

  4. Follow the instructions in the Add Rule wizard.

  5. In the Traffic Rules window, click OK.

Add a Program rule

  1. In the Norton main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, click Firewall.

  3. On the Program Control tab, in the Program column, select the program to which you want to add a rule.

  4. Click Modify.

    You can also use the Access drop-down list next to the program to modify the access level for the program. Accordingly, Smart Firewall modifies or creates the relevant rule for the program.

  5. In the Rules window, click Add.

  6. Follow the instructions in the Add Rule wizard.

  7. In the Rules window, click OK.
