How to allow communication for a certain application

If a new connection is detected in the interactive mode and if there is no rule match, you will be prompted in a dialog window to allow or deny the connection. If you wish to perform the same action every time the application attempts to establish connection, select the Remember action check box.

For applications which are not communicating at the moment, you can create rules in the personal firewall setup. There are two ways to add a new rule. You can either right-click in the list of existing rules and select New rule, or click Edit all rules and then click New.

In the General tab enter the name, direction and communication protocol for the rule. The window allows you to define the action to be taken when the rule is applied.

Insert the path to the application’s executable and the local communication port in the Local point tab. Go to the Remote point tab to enter the remote address and port (if applicable). The newly-created rule will be applied as soon as the application tries to communicate again.
