    I am new to looknstop and using/trying the (latest) trial version...
    and i want to set 192.168.0.25 as a trusted host.
    So the fw will allow all ethernet-trafic from and to this host (tcp/udp/icmp etc.)

    Of course i am still using the StandardRuleSet (fresh from the box).

    I must have overlooked something, because a part of the traffic is blocked,
    by the last rule "TCP any other packets" (also according the log)

    I've used this in the rule:

    EthernetType : All
    Direction: In/OUT
    IP: All,All,All,All,0,All,0
    Ethernet Address: ALL blank , All blank (perhaps i have to set the MAC here)
    Source Ip Address eq 192.168.0.25 (tcp/udp = ALL)

    Dest Ip Address: All All

    Did i overlook something?


    :doubt:

    Hi tuatara,

    Exactly, set there your MAC address as the sender, and the other trusted computer MAC address as the receiver.

    You can find your MAC addresse by typing :

    ipconfig /all

    in command line. You can type too :

    arp -a

    to know the remote computer MAC address.
    Then put the rule in the top of your rules list, and all traffic between these two computers should be allowed.

    regards,

    gkweb.
