I know this might conflict but how do I make CFW more silent and at the same time keep the security level unscathed.
Put it in safe mode but enable the alerts.
After i allowed what i wanted to allow (dont go so much in details. Choose “treat as OUTgoing”, or a bit more specific… Avoid to allow ingoing if its not NECESSARY),
and blocked what i wanted to be blocked WITHOUT further question,
my firewall is silent until i want it to act.
If you are refering to unrequested ingoing attempts, you might use the stealth port wizard setting “hide me from everyone” in the program.
