Modify Traffic rules and Program rules

You can change an existing firewall rule if it does not function the way that you want. You can use the Modify option to change the settings of an existing firewall rule. When you change a rule, the firewall uses the new criteria of the modified rule to control network traffic.

You cannot modify some of the default rules that are read-only. However, you can view the settings of these rules by using the View option.

Modify a Traffic rule

  1. In the Norton main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, under Detailed Settings, click Firewall.

  3. On the Traffic Rules tab, select the rule that you want to change.

  4. Click Modify.

  5. In the Modify Rule window, make the necessary changes to modify any aspect of the rule.

  6. When you have finished changing the rule, click OK.
