    Question. Why isnt there a common internet ports rule for UDP on by default also? Is this some sort of security risk? The reason I ask is many internet games require the same range of ports, but UDP so its strange for this rule not to be included yet TCP is.

    After realizing I havent received any responses I decided to reread my post and it honestly is not clear at all (I aplogize I think I was over tired :ouch:)

    What I was referring to are online games that use the HL/Steam server browser which locates and finds servers for many games such as TF2, CounterStrike, Left4Deat, Etc... They require a huge range of UDP ports the same range used for the Local IN range. My suggestion/comment is that this rule should be added to the list of predefined rulesets on the Look'n'Stop website to make it somewhat easier for new users.
