In ESET Cyber Security Pro you can create firewall rules and exceptions that are specific to a firewall profile. Firewall profiles, when used in combination with the Zone and Rule editor, allow ESET Cyber Security Pro to switch profiles automatically when traveling between multiple networks. For example, if you travel to and from work and access public networks while out of the office, but do not require the use of certain rules while at your office, you can create profiles for office and public use. When ESET Cyber Security Pro detects the IP address from your office network, it will only enforce the rules included in your office profile. When you access a public network with a different IP address, the firewall will automatically switch to your public profile and enforce the rules that you have in place for that profile.
Continue to the Define your zones section below for instructions to create a new zone without creating a dedicated profile for that zone.
In addition to zones that are automatically detected, you can add zones based on IP address, subnet, WiFi network or interface. Once created, you can set any zone to use the rules from any one of your profiles, or create a new profile with a set of rules specific to this zone. To add a new zone, follow the steps below:
