Very basic question

  • Dear Forum,

    Hello and I am new to this Forum and PFSense.
    I have a very general question. :-[

    I installed PFSense on my PC.
    Is there some basic protection already working ? ..and could you recommend some
    documents with some basic rules for protecting my internal network?
    Thank you for any suggestions!
