I have CIS 4 installed.
But I dont understand anything of it.
The firewall is asking me nothing at all . I have a game installed where I need to host. CIS3 asked me to allow or not and that worked fine.
CIS4 asks me nothing. Nada. When adding a rule nothing happens either.
It just won’t allow anything to come in. Same goes for Utorrent and everything else that should come in.
I am not a big specialist but it was like this during the Beta and still now nothing seems to work.
I am so confused. Thought it would be made easier but I don’t see what I should do more. Please help.
Only when the firewall is turned off things work. Even in learning mode it won’t allow anything through.
The default Global Rules changed from being alerted for incoming traffic on a per case basis to a general block of all incoming traffic (default Stealth).
Open the needed ports in Global Rules following:
To open the port TCP 1723 for example
First step is to determine the MAC or Physical address of you network connector. Go to Start → Run → cmd → enter → a black box will show up and enter the following → ipconfig /all (notice the space before /all) → enter → now look up the Physical address and write it down.
Notice that Physical address = MAC address
Firewall → Advanced → Network Security policy → Global Rules → Add → fill in the following:
Description: Incoming Port
Source address: Any
Destination Address: Choose MAC address and fill in the found MAC/Physical address
Source Port: Any
Destination Port: 1723
Then push Apply → Now make sure that the new rule is somewhere above the basic block rule(s) as the bottom (the block rules have red icons); you can drag and drop the rules → Ok.
