The Firewall in antivirus monitors the network traffic going to and from the system. There are multiple types of firewalls enabling the use of a different approach to traffic filtering.However, the user can configure suitable Eset Smart Security Firewall settings. The Firewall denies the allowing and denying of individual network connections based on specified filtering conditions.
- The Firewall provides maximum protection from remote computers and can block threatening services. It adds a parameter to the antivirus setup.
- The Firewall in the ESET antivirus has various modes of filtering.
- The automatic mode is the default filtering suitable for users that enable easy use of firewalls with basic rules.
- It allows the inbound traffic for a given system and blocks most of the outbound with an exception for some trust-based sites.
- It is a custom configuration mode of filtering.
- If the Firewall detects a communication and no firewall rules are applied to it, the dialog box will report that an unknown connection is made.
- You can allow or deny communication. This decision can be saved as a new rule for the Firewall.
- If the new rule is created, all the future connections coming to this network will be set to the new rule.
- It will either allow or block based on the report.
- The policy-based filtering will block all connections if they don't match the firewall rules in Eset.
- The mode allows the advanced users that define rules and only permit only the secured connections.
- The Firewall will block other unknown connections.
- The learning mode is best used for the initial configuration of the Firewall.
- The Eset antivirus sets rules according to the predefined parameters.
- The learning mode should be used first until all set of firewall rules are created to avoid any further security risks.
