Firewall: Advanced Packet Rules

This Article Applies to:

  • AVG Business Cloud Console
  • AVG Business On-Premise Console

Advanced Packet Rules are the final level of Firewall rule evaluation, meaning they are utilized only if the connection does not fit any System or Application rules. We recommend you ensure these rules are controlled by your Console for maximum security across your network.

Adding Advanced Packet Rules

  1. Click the Advanced packet rules tab
  2. Scroll down to the bottom on the page and click Add new rule
  3. Replace "default packet rule" with a name unique name for the rule
  4. Change All protocols (256) to the correct protocol, such as TCP and UDP (257)
  5. Add IP address (if applicable) and Local and Remote Port numbers (you may use commas for different port numbers, or a hyphen for a port range)
  6. Click Update
    • We recommend to drag/drop the new custom packet rule to the top of the list so the local AVG Business Antivirus clients will process this custom packet rule first
  7. Click Apply changes in the top-right corner when you are done adding rules
