Inbound Firewall
Inbound Firewall has two main modes of operation: 'Adaptive Automatic Protection' (for average-novice users)
and Manual Protection 'Profiles' (for advanced users).

Adaptive Automatic Protection allows you to forget about ports setup, automatically blocking open listening ports of all the Trusted processes.  Adaptive Automatic mode is preset and does not accept changes.  If you have an application that requires a port opened, just set it as Untrusted in the Untrusted Applications List. It is protected by Defensewall's Sandbox system.  (If a computer is within a domain, DefenseWall automatically opens #445, 135, 137, 138, 139 ports.)

Green Checkmark Icon graphic indicates closed ports.

'Allow' button lets you open (allow) needed ports which are closed by Adaptive Automatic Protection and remove (close) those added.
