Configuring zones

A zone represents a collection of network addresses that create one logical group of IP addresses, useful when you need to reuse the same set of addresses in multiple rules. Each address in a given group is assigned similar rules defined centrally for the whole group. One example of such a group is a Trusted zone. A Trusted zone represents a group of network addresses that are not blocked by the Personal firewall in any way. These zones can be configured in Advanced setup > Personal firewall > Advanced, by clicking Edit next to Zones. To add a new zone click Add, enter a Name for the zone, a Description and add a remote IP address into the Remote computer address (IPv4/IPv6, range, mask) field.

In the Firewall zones setup window, you can specify a zone name, description and network address list (also see Known networks editor).
