what is SEP firewall behavior when SEP firewall and Windows firewall work parrallel ?

Policies for Firewall, Intrusion Prevention, Application & Device Control will not apply because these components do not exist on the SEP for Mac client.

Only one firewall needs to be activated on WIndows.

 

what SEP firewall does with pre built customized rules in windows firewall when SEP firewall installs and disable windows firewall ?

Windows Firewall is indeed turned off when SEP NTP is enabled, indicated by the Installed Firewall list, as well as the General Firewall status section indicating that firewall rules are being managed by SEP.
