    For some reason I cant get my head around these firewall settings. for example I am trying to allow admuncher to connect to remote ports 80 and block all other traffic, and with these settings in place it is blocking http traffic even with
    the port 80 allow rule in place. what have I missed??

    Put checkmarks on the right. (H and L settings)
    Does it work now?

    I've no real experience with customizing rules but shouldn't there be a check in the applicable H or L boxes?

    It might be something as simple as that.

    (edited to add that fblais posted the same thought while i was preparing my reply. hope it works out.)

    Did you check under the advanced settings to see if anything is blocked under "parents"? Not sure if it applies to that app or not.

    OK I think I have worked this out FP doesn't seem to work like other firewalls with going down from top to bottom in its rules. Instead a way round this which probably is the only way is to have rules like this.
