Security Settings

On this page you can select a security level to edit. Click on the profile you want to edit:
High - High security (firewall very restrictive)
Low - Lower security (firewall more open)
AltConf - User defined security level

You are recommended to edit "AltConf" only. The other profiles should not be changed.

Import/Export Profile - Save security profiles to file, or load them from a file.

Scheduler - Using the scheduler you can automatically switch between security profiles at predetermined times.



Resource Allocation

Flows
The firewall creates a "flow" for each data stream to stateful inspect. The more flows the more data streams can be open through the firewall at the same time. But having too many flows reduce performance and memory available for other tasks.
In use - Number of flows used by the firewall right now.
Peak - Highest amount of flows ever used by the firewall since last power-on.
Total - Maximum amount of flows available to the firewall. Values 500 - 5000 accepted. Recommended values are 2000 for home users, and 4000 for small offices with many PCs behind the firewall.
If the current or peak amount of flows approaches the amount total available then you should increase the "Total" value, and click "Save & Reboot" to reboot the unit with the new value.

Import/Export Profile

By saving security profiles to your computer you can later reuse these settings. In this way you can in fact work with more than the three security profiles, and also copy settings from one profile to another.
Import is when you get a profile from your computer and copy it to the firewall.
Export is when you copy a profile from the firewall to your computer.



Import

Click the "Browse" button to select a previously saved security settings file on your computer. Then select the profile on which you want to copy these settings. Click the "Go" button to start copying.



Export

Select the profile to copy from. After clicking "Go" you will get dialog boxes from your Internet browser to enter file name/directory. Normally, the file will be named "profilex.txt" but you can choose any name.
