Just noticed that there are some new rules in my firewall settings.
(in Application Rules)
Allow System To Send Requests If The Target Is In [Home #1]
Allow System To Receive Requests If The Sender Is In [Home #1]
(in Global Rules)
All All Outgoing Requests If The Target Is In [Home #1]
All All Incoming Requests If The Sender Is In [Home #1]
These rules just recently appeared and I don’t know why.
All I’ve done today is try out ComodoDNS… does that have anything to do with it?
Once you’ve installed CIS you’ll get a pop-up asking for your location. If you choose ‘Home’ those rules will be created.

What are these rules doing exactly?
Is there a way to change the network type manually whenever I want?
The rules allow for basic file and printer sharing on Microsoft/Samba networks. The rule is based on the Network Zone identified when CIS was installed, Usually, this is something like:
Although there are variations.
If you want to change the rules, you can modify the network zone or edit the rules directly.
