    Re: Kerio 2.1.5 and Look 'n' Stop 2.05

    Hi Folks

    I have finally decided to try Kerio 2.1.5 ...

    I am newbie to all these firewalls and I am willing to learn.

    So is there anywhere I can find a Step By Step instruction on setting up the rules and I think I have come across BlitzenZues instruction somewhere before but I still am not very clear about it.

    I need the firewall to enable me to do these:

    1) Surf Web using IE (only for WinUpDate) & Firefox (default)
    2) Update/upgrade/Download virus definations for all Anti-softwares.
    3) MSN - Net Meeting and Voice Chat etc.,
    4) LAN / Modem / Dial up connection - I am behind Uni firewall/Router.
    5) Printer ...
    6) Email such as Yahoo/Hotmail/Gmail/Webmail etc.,
    7) Downloading Softwares like from MajorGeek.com etc., legitimate sites.

    So a guide to set up those will be very welcomed.

    Btw, how many rules in totol are there to set?

    Cheers

    Chew

    Hi chew

    I split your post off into it's own topic.

    BlitzenZeus Kerio v2.x Default Replacement Rules is a good place to start. There are also some other links to general firewall rules in the Other Firewalls Sticky Posts.

    Keep in mind that when Kerio prompts you when an application is accessing the network/Internet you can customize the rule at that time restricting it to certain remote service/ports and IP's. You can also manually configure your rules if you know ahead of time what parameters you want.

    Everyones configuration will be different and unique. There is no set number of rules.

    Make sure logging is enabled as this will help with troubleshooting and customizing rules. Have a good understanding of what your applications will require in the way TCP and UDP communications beforehand and if you need help with a particular rule we can always provide suggestions here.

    Regards,

    CrazyM

    Guys

    Thank you to you all for the info.

    I think I really need to do plenty of readings about what to set in firewall first before attempting.

    Thanks for the link etc.,

    Cheers

    eeermmm ... eDonkey2000? Isn't that a file sharing app?

    Do you think it's related to firewall app. like Kerio?

    Hi, I asked how to configure mi kerio 2.1.5 using eDonkey2000, that is a p2p client.
    I have configured this way:
    protocol: tcp and udp
    direction: both directions
    local:
    port: any
    application: eDonkey2000
    remote:
    adress:any
    port:range 6000 to 10000
    action: permit
    Is this correct?
    Is it true that p2p programs are anyway dangerous to be hacked?
    mmmmm

    I don't know about being hacked, but you might regret using them if the RIAA or FBI get hold of you... Probably best to avoid p2p programs these days...
