Set a zone to block all connection


Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I am trying to learn configuring eset firewall. I hope someone can help me with my queries.

 

1.) Is it possible to create a zone with firewall rule to block ALL connection? Just like the option on Network Traffic Filtering that has the option "block all network traffic: disconnect network".

 

2.) When changing zone with firewall rule , is the firewall fast enough to cut the connection and prevent the resticted program from the network?

 

for example:

firewall rule "A" linked to Zone "A" will allow the program "X" to connect to the network.

Firewall "B" linked to Zone "B" will restrict/block it.

If Zone "A" is currently active and program "x" is currently running , if Zone "A" changes to Zone "B" , is the firewall fast enough to block program "X" immediately? is there any seconds gap in between changes?

 

 

 

Thanks!

Hi Marcos , thanks for replying.

 

We have 2 wireless networks: personal and business.

On my laptop,I have already created Trusted Zones for each network using the properties you mentioned. And eset changes zones automatically depending on which network I connect to - which is working correctly.

 

Most of the time I am connected to "personal" network , which is not monitored and I have a lot of personal applications running in the background and connecting to the internet.

 

Sometimes I have to connect to "business" network, and I forget that i still have background programs running that should not connect to business network.

 

 

What I want to do is block all connections if my laptop connects to "business" network. Instead of adding each applications that need to be blocked.

 

Is the firewall fast enough to totally blocked the connections to the internet if the zone changes from persoanl to business?

 

sorry if I can't make if any clearer.

 

Thanks!

Changing networks should affect firewall rules immediately. Let's say you were downloading a file via http while being connected to the "personal" network. If you created a blocking rule for http communication, existing connections wouldn't be terminated but any further http communication would be blocked. My understanding is that when changing networks, existing connections are dropped and for new connections rules for the given zone are applied immediately.

It was already explained - create rules for specific firewall profiles. As soon as the profile changes (e.g. another zone is authenticated), the appropriate rules for the given zone will be applied immediately.
