I just installed the FW last night, like what I see. It configured a lot for me, but I am afraid that it may give to much permissions to things, I am paranoid!!! Can anyone tell me or point me to a post that can tell me how to configure the firewall, and what rules I may need to create? Any suggestions that will help me would be great as well…
Application Monitor and delete any rules existing. Then disable security->advanced->automatically approve safe applications option and restart your PC. If you want to see more verbose popups, then you also need to disable “Security->Advanced->Basic popup logic”.
Then CPF will show you popups and will create rules according to your answers. You can further modify the rules in application monitor after the popups.
OH, ok, then the default when it scanned should be safe enough…? A lot of resources, can I disable any of the start up programs? and I saw the faq for emule, anything I should know before adding the emule rule?
