The Firewall component in TechGenie Total Security and Absolute protects your computer from inbound and outbound unauthorized connection attempts and works on both local networks and on the Internet. The antivirus Firewall keeps a track of connection attempts and decides which to allow and which to block. Also, it uses a set of rules to filter data transmitted to and from your system and monitors Firewall activity in real time.
The rules in Firewall are divided into two categories, Firewall Rules and Firewall Activity. While the former configures firewall related rules, the later monitors firewall activity in real time.
The steps to monitor the current network in Firewall include:
To monitor the current network / Internet activity over TCP and UDP sorted by application, you can follow these steps:
1. Open the Antivirus window.
2. Click on “Rules” button and “Manage Firewall Rules” window will appears.
3. Select “Firewall Activity.”
Once you select the Firewall Activity, a new window will appear where you can see the total traffic sorted by application. For each application, you can see the connections and the open ports, as well as statistics regarding the outgoing and incoming traffic speed and the total amount of data sent / received.
Also, the window presents the current network / Internet activity in real-time and as the connections or ports are closed, you can see that the corresponding statistics are dimmed and eventually disappears. The same thing happens to all statistics corresponding to an application.
This is how you can monitor the current network in Firewall in TechGenie Total Security and Absolute. So, the next time you find yourself stuck between any steps while monitoring the current network in Firewall, don’t get confused, simply follow the steps and make the changes at the comfort of your home, office, or home office.
