How to not block loopbacks

How to not block loopbacks

Postby ibm650 » Fri Apr 12, 2013 4:20 pm

Address of form 127.x.x.x should not be blocked, it does not show anywhere, but I had to turn off firewall control (allow everything) to make my application work

With the Free version you should use EnableAll zone to enable everything including loopback.
With the Plus (or above) versions you should add the loopback related enabling rule into zone application to application.
The rule is typically already added into almost any not-disabling default zone. So loopback is almost anytime included/enabled (excepting the DisableAll zone).
The rules are called LocalHost and LocalHostv6 (for IPv6 loopback). You can use the rules as samples to patch any custom/existing rule (of required) via the rules repository.
