    Default Bypass rules

    Hi there,
    I have a situation where I need to exclude 1 or 2 client computers from being filtered at all. Can I do this with bypass rules? How do I go about setting that up, I need to create a rule saying something like "all traffic going to this client" and "all traffic coming from this client" gets bypassed?

    Thanks in advance for your help. I've done a bit of searching on the WIKI - just need some clarification.

    Search for "NO RACK". That provides a path without any filtering or other processing. Its part of Policy Management, but is free for everyone.

    OK. So I just need to add the IP address of the client that I want excluded into the Address>Client option under Policy Manager, and assign it the No Rack option? Anything else I need to configure - I'm running in bridge mode, btw...

    I think I'd include ports too. You're thinking web access (maybe), but someone on the outside might be thinking NetBios attack.

    Agreed, although I'm not actually using UT as a firewall, just the web/virus/spam/spyware filter components. I'd rather limit it to ports I need than have everything open though. I have a hardware firewall in front of it.
