    hi.
    in firewall "zone and rule setup" we have in/out sections.i wonder what the real meaning is?
    does "internet in" mean a connection from inbound to outbound?or does it mean a connection from outbound to inbound?
    or
    does "internet out" mean a connection from inbound to outbound?or does it mean a connection from outbound to inbound?

    Hello mzbcracker

    It is not much, but here is what I know about your question : Trusted zone in and out, (that define your network environment ) is related to all incoming and outgoing communication within the defined Trusted Zone that you e.g. defined under the installation of eset.
    Internet in and out, is about, or related to, all the in and outgoing internet communication you may have .

    Cheers, Janus :)

    hi.i know what inbound and outbound connection is.i have CCNA certificate.
    but i wonder about the direction of connection.for example "internet in":
    is it from in to out?
    or is it from out to in?

    Internet in = inbound traffic = out to in (as you put it)
