Zones setup

It is necessary to configure Trusted zones to protect your computer in a network environment. You can allow other users to access your computer by configuring a Trusted zone to allow sharing. Click Advanced Setup (F5) > Network protection > Firewall > Advanced > Zones to access settings for Trusted zones.

Trusted zone detection occurs after ESET Endpoint Security installation and whenever your computer connects to a new network. Therefore, there is usually no need to define the Trusted zone. By default, a dialog window is displayed upon detection of a new zone which allows you to set the protection level for that zone.




An incorrect trusted zone configuration may pose a security risk to your computer.



By default, workstations from a Trusted zone are granted access to shared files and printers, have incoming RPC communication enabled and have remote desktop sharing available.
