IDS exceptions can be used to customize Personal firewall behavior when IDS detections occur. By adding an IDS exception, you can specify whether to block malicious activities, show a notification or log information about malicious activities. All exceptions can be viewed from Advanced setup under Network > Personal firewall > IDS exceptions.
Alert – Type of alert.
Application – Name of excepted application.
Remote IP – A list of remote IPv4 or IPv6 address. Multiple addresses must be delimited by a comma.
Block – Every system process has its own default behavior and assigned action (block or allow). To override default behavior for a particular application, select block or allow from the drop-down menu.
Notify – Default/Yes/No.
Log – Default/Yes/No.
Add/Edit/Remove – Manage IDS exceptions.
Top/Up/Down/Bottom – Moves an exception up/down on the list. If there are multiple exceptions for the same IP address or application, the first exception listed for that application will be applied. Exceptions are applied for each action type (block, notify, log) separately.
