Rule Precedence clarification?

Post by fourquarts » Sat Apr 05, 2014 3:17 am

Hi - am I correct in understanding that the logic of the Rule Precedence means that the user could use it to create a "default deny" mode, in which a given process—or all processes—is allowed to connect to certain servers, ports, etc, based on existing rules, but that an additional rule of "deny any connection" would mean that any attempts *other than* those matching preexisting rules would instead be denied by default? So, in other words, the servers (or whatever) allowed in the other rules would continue to work, but any other attempts would be denied?

I was going to request this as a feature, but if I'm understanding Rule Precedence correctly, it would seem that the feature already exists.
