How do I completely remove all rules set by Murus?

Hi,
How do I completely remove all rules set by Murus?

I don't wish to uninstall it, just to ensure that it is providing no filtering at all, 'as if' it were never installed.

Thanks :-)

you just have to click "STOP" button (black square) in Murus toolbar. That will disable pf. This means there is no packet filtering at all.
Actually it is the same as typing the "pfctl -d" shell command.
Don't be fooled by the rules browser: pf rules are "active" (= visible) even if pf is disabled. So when pf is disabled (=Murus is stopped) you still see rules within Murus PF Rules Browser and within the shell terminal (pftcl -sr), but they are not effective.
