Enabling and disabling Firewall rules

To enable or disable an existing rule for filtering incoming network traffic, perform the following actions:

  1. Expand the Managed devices node in the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console tree.
  2. Select the administration group for which you want to configure application settings.
  3. Perform one of the following actions in the details pane of the selected administration group:
    • To configure application settings for a group of protected devices, select the Policies tab and open the Properties: <Policy name> window.
    • To configure the application for a single protected device, select the Devices tab and open the Application settings window.

      If an active Kaspersky Security Center policy is applied to a device and blocks changes to application settings, then these settings cannot be edited in the Application settings window.

  4. In the Network activity control section, click the Settings button in the Firewall Management subsection.
  5. Click the Rules list button in the window that opens.

    The Inbound Firewall rules window opens.

  6. Depending on the type of the rule whose status you want to modify, click Inbound or Outbound link, and then select the Applications or Ports tab.
  7. In the rule list, select the rule whose status you want to modify and perform one of the following actions:
    • If you want to enable a disabled rule, select the check box to the left of the rule name.

      The selected rule is enabled.

    • If you want to disable an enabled rule, clear the check box to the left of the rule name.

      The selected rule is disabled.

  8. Click OK in the Inbound Firewall rules window.
  9. Click OK in the Firewall Management window.
  10. Click OK in the Properties: <Policy name> window.

The specified task settings are saved. The new rule parameters will be sent to Windows Firewall.
