Low HDD activity

Low HDD activity

Postby metal450 » Fri Dec 23, 2016 8:30 pm

Quick question: I couldn't find the “Low HDD activity” feature mentioned in the manual, but within the software says it disables "Run/Ext/RouterSync/AllowOnce." I know what’s RouterSync & AllowOnce, and I’m guessing “Run” refers to not checking application running state (i.e. the "Run" column on the Programs tab). But what’s “Ext”?

Right.

> But what’s “Ext”?

A sign in the Ext column appears when an application is set with a zone, with a rule, with Forwarded (ext) port set, with Direction = Incoming and the application is running.
So the firewall creates port forwarding automatically on the application start, removes forwarding on the application stop and announces the forwarding with icon in the column

Ah, OK. I don't appear to have an Ext column - but in any case, if I'm not using the port forwarding functionality, it sounds like disabling this wouldn't affect me one way or another. Thanks! :)
