What the difference exactly ?
On interactive mode, the firewall will prompt you for an answer (Allow - Deny) when ever a new connection is detected from an application that had no rules defined. On policy based if such event occur, the firewall will not prompt but block the connection since it is not on the rules list, ergo the Policy implemented in the machine.
In simplified terms:
- Automatic mode = always allow, unless denied by a rule (best suited to beginners).
- Interactive mode = ask the user (for advanced users).
- Policy-based mode = always block, unless allowed by a rule (best suited for corporate environments and/or stable home machines with rules already in place).
Just a few things
OK..figured it was something like that. Makes sense. Thanks
