Create a firewall rule to allow/disallow use of a certain application in my Windows ESET home product
The ESET firewall acts as a network traffic filter that regulates communication within the local network or internet. Using predefined rules, the firewall analyzes network communication and decides whether or not to allow it. You can configure your firewall to make exceptions for certain applications.
