Controlling whether networked computers can share messages, files, and printing

Network services let networked computers send and receive messages, shared files, and print. You can create a firewall rule that allows or blocks network services.

You can add a custom network service through a firewall rule. However, that network service is not added to the default list. You cannot access the custom service from any other rule.

To control whether networked computers can share messages, files, and printing

  1. In the console, open a Firewall policy.

  2. On the Firewall Policy page, click Rules.

  3. On the Rules tab, in the Rules list, select the rule you want to edit, right-click the Service field, and then click Edit.

  4. In the Service List dialog box, check box beside each service that you want to trigger the rule.

  5. To add an additional service for the selected rule only, click Add.

  6. In the Protocol dialog box, select a protocol from the Protocol drop-down list.

  7. Fill out the appropriate fields.

  8. Click OK.

  9. Click OK.

  10. Click OK.
