In the left panel go to Protecting Your System
, then Setting Up Protection Based on Application
. In the right panel you will see "How to Set Permissions by Application" and "Advanced Application Configuration".
You should already have an entry for Bittornado in the Applications
window. So choose it, then click on Advanced
- Leave the "The Trusted IPs" box empty
- Check "Act as Client" and "Act as Server"
- Leave all "Remoter Server Ports" and "Local Ports" fields empty
- Check "Allow during Screensaver Mode" if you have one
- I think ICMP traffic is not necessary, so you can uncheck it
- Uncheck "Enable Scheduling"
This allows Bittornado to initiate and accept connections, but will give you not
the highest security. To improve your settings, you can set specific ports in the "Remote Server Ports" fields, but unfortunately you can not specify if you want only TCP or UDP communication at this page. So you have different choices now:
- Specify the ports at this page and create an advance rule to allow only TCP communications or
- Create an advanced rule which specifies the ports and the type.
To specify the ports on this page:
- Enter 6881-6899 in the TCP field under "Remote Server Ports"
- Enter the same in the UDP field. UDP is not used by Bittornado, but if you leave it blank, the firewall will allow all UDP ports
If you want to setup a advanced rule, read the topic Configuring Advanced Rules for Security
on the above Sygate site and post if you have questions.
Note, that you only have to open as much ports as you want to run instances of Bittornado simultanously. Also check the preferences in Bittornado, so the port settings match with your firewall rules.
