    Hi all.

    So i decided to try out L'n'S and untill now i'm very pleased (nonbloatware + low mem foot print = win :> ).

    However, i come from an application based Firewall,
    but i'm starting to figure out how to make rules.
    But i'm interested in what the apps are allowed to do,
    when i dont make a rule for them?
    F.e i just authorized firefox to access the internet, but didnt make a rule.
    does that mean that it's allowed to use all ports or is L'n'S "smart" enough to only allow TCP port 80?

    Second, i've made 2 rules for my bittorrent client :

    TCP allow port 52001 in/out
    UDP allow port 6881 in/out

    Still i see many connections to the 52001 port being blocked in the log?
    I've placed these rules just above the TCP block incomming connections rule (advanced ruleset).

    Btw. is there a certain tip for how i place my rules (top/bottom)?
    iirc p2p needs to go just above the TCP block incomming connections,
    so what about games/browsers/ftp aso.

    If you authorize an app but didn't make a rule LnS will allow the app to communicate on all ports and to all IP addresses. This can easily be changed by double-clicking the app in the list and entering the ports/IP's you want to allow/dis-allow for this app.

    Re. 52001 port being blocked. What rule is blocking it ?

    The "TCP: Block incomming Connections" rule.

    i've placed my bittorrent rules just above it.
