Temporary Filter Rules

Tue Sep 24, 2019 7:29 pm

Hello everyone,

Can I create a temporary rule in my Firewall that has a finite amount to time to stay ON, and, after a certain amount of time, it would be turned off?

Thanks in Advance!

The only finite item are adresslists. If you can hook a rule to an adress ot domainn then it would.

An other way to put a comment code word or number on a rule and use scheduler to switch that rule on or off by finding that code word or number and switch the rule.

Hmmm well, not quite so fast.
There is under the filter rules tab of "EXTRA", a time setting.
This shows the Days of the Week and an initial time setting and in effect to a second setting which default is 24 hours.
Not sure what you need but there is at least this......
