    I apologise if this question is too simple or is covered somewhere I should have looked.

    If I bring up the active network connections and and choose "deny communications for this connection" for a certain connection, does this block the connection permanently or only for the duration of that session? If it blocks it permanently, how do I unblock it?

    Hello,

    Thank you for your inquiry. If you select an action on a network item, it will enter a rule into the firewall to either allow or deny it. You may need to reset the firewall rules to clear out the problematic rule.

    Thanks,

    Matt
