Rules by default
hi, everybody, Iam little confuse, pfsense by default block everything until you create a first rule, right? In my case I started creating some rules, example.
reservation –------>permit -------> 53,110,25,995( just for emails)
but in this case, these peoples I can see still using skype, whithout any problem of couse they dont have internet, that what I wanted. not internet just emails, but thats applications p2p they can use.
so, I have to block first everything and then start to implement my rules or there is something missing?
Right after installing pfSense you have a rule on LAN that allows everything from the LAN out.
Rules are processed from top to down.
If a rule catches the rest of the rules is no longer considered.
Per default a "block all" rule is always in place (invisible below your own rules).
Traffic is filtered on the Interface on which traffic comes in.
So traffic comming in on the LAN-Interface will only be processed by the rules you define on the LAN tab.
