    Greetings Since i am on a stand alone machine and do not use proxies should i write a rule to block socks ( more security ). Or is it best to leave the OP default configuration as is?

    Hi Rainwalker

    Do any of your existing rules allow it?
    If not, make sure the firewall is configured to block unsolicited inbounds and deny/prompt if something tries to go out on that service. A block rule should not be necessary then, but could still be used.

    Regards,
