    to open the necessary ports for say emule, LnS requires four rules whereas Comodo or Jetico only need two. why is this?

    also LnS seems to have more rules for blocking stuff.

    first of all it is not a criter which firewall requires how many rules.

    secondly you misunderstood something because lns can open those qorts with only one rule. Even lns can open port ranges in one rule.

    for instance, if you wanna open 9999 port for both TCP and UDP, you dont need to make it in two rules. There is a setting for TCP and UDP combination in ruleset window.

    I don't want to hijack WSFuser's thread but, I have a quick question about rules that pertain to the direction set to "inbound and outbound". Normally I make a set of inbound only and/or outbound only per application when needed but, when the rules states the direction is "inbound and outbound" which side is for local ports and which side is for remote ports.

    Hi NAMOR :)

    Left side : local addresses and ports (from @IP = your local IP address)
    Right side: remote addresses and ports

    One remark: most of the time an internet application upload to a server and download to your PC. Only one rule is needed (with incoming and outgoing packets)


    :)
