Preset Configure settings

Post by johnmri » Tue Jul 21, 2015 2:34 am

Hello-
First, let me state that I'm a newbie about PF Firewall. I always used a commercial firewalls with my mac. I heard about Murus and decided to give it a try. I like to use the preset configurations, but don't know how high I should set it. I'm using it on my iMac at home. Any help would be greatly appreciated :D

Thanks-
John

Hello John,

Let me say that it is almost impossible to answer your question. A firewall is a set of rules. Rules are used to enforce a policy, so first of all you need to think about your policy. If you don't need to share documents, printers or screen or such, then you can choose preset 4. If you are paranoid about apps making unwanted connections or such, then you can choose a more restrictive ruleset, even the most restrictive preset 7.
