StopSign® Help Files - Firewall
StopSign Firewall monitors your Internet connection, blocks intruder attacks, and provides advanced professional protection 24/7 for your computer.
StopSign Firewall automatically detects and blocks attacks directed at your computer and alerts you when rogue applications try to gain access to your computer.
Features of StopSign Firewall include:
Configuration Assistant: A wizard that will allow users to configure the StopSign Firewall to meet their specific needs.
Allow Most Mode: The default mode of Firewall, where any connection not specifically blocked is allowed.
Learning Mode: An interactive mode of Firewall, where any connection attempt without a specific rule will prompt you, allowing for the building of rule sets over time.
Block Most Mode: A mode of Firewall where any connection not specifically allowed is blocked. This may interfere with the normal network connectivity of your system if you do not have rules for every network-enabled application. It is only recommended for advanced users who have been running in learning mode for a period of time.
