Why is the above rule coloured differently from the other rules and what does it represent?
This rule is a general rule used to block all remaining UDP packets (the ones not checked by a previous UDP rule...).
In the screen capture this rule looks like a specific rule: a rule activated by at least on program, not all programs.
Somethings is wrong here...
Double-click on this rule to access the editing windows.
In the editing windows click on the "applications..." button.
Check the list on the left side: this list must be empty. If not remove all entries from the left side, save, ok ...
Hope this help. Let us know.
Thank you for reply...
After following your directions i can see why the colour is different.It is as you suspected an application allowed.In fact i remember allowing it myself,but had forgotten.It was neutron.exe....a small atomic time program,that uses UDP but was blocked using the standard rules.Ive since found out that clicking the log rule thats blocking it ,it gives me the option of auto making the rule to allow it ,so ill do it that way in future,as i find manually making rules rather difficult in looknstop due to the terminology more than anything else.Thanks again for clearing that up.
By the way here's a specific rule for Neutron.
This program used UDP on remote port 37 (Time) ...
Download the file, rename it by removing the .TXT and import it in LNS.
Place the rule just after the general rule "Autorise most common Internet applications" .
Save and apply.
Thanks very much for taking the time to make th rule.Im now using that one ;0
