Total Novice. Please Help.

Post by bradleyb » Sun Sep 18, 2016 11:22 pm

Hi,

I bought a license for Murus Basic. All i want to do is block incoming and outgoing connections for one specific program. Otherwise, I want all other applications to connect as usual. I am a total novice and can;t find any documentation on how to accomplish this. Can someone please walk me through it or point me in the right direction? Thanks so much!

Hello, I'm afraid you bought the wrong product.
To block a specific application from connecting you have to use Vallum, not Murus.
Murus is a NETWORK FIREWALL thus it is only able to block/pass connections based on source and/or destination IP/port.
Vallum is an APPLICATION FIREWALL and is able to block a connection based on which app has triggered it.

Please send a mail to info@murus.it so we can convert your Murus license into a Vallum license :)
In case you payed more money than needed then we will refund you, do not worry! :)
Then it's really super easy to configure Vallum, you just need to drag your app icon into Vallum window, and the app will be blocked.
