    Default Numerous RULES sections

    Never used this OS before so perhaps I'm a bit confused. There seems to be numerous sections where rules can be entered to accomplish the same thing. I'm assuming there is a priority? It's kinda weird that I need to look at all these sections to see where a particular rule might have been entered.

    Config > Advanced > Access Rules
    Config > Filter Rules
    Firewall > Rules

    Wiki is your friend. https://wiki.untangle.com/

    Access Rules are to the NGFW itself. https://wiki.untangle.com/index.php/Access_Rules
    Filter Rules are for Layer 3 traffic https://wiki.untangle.com/index.php/Filter_Rules
    Firewall Rules are for Layer 7 traffic. https://wiki.untangle.com/index.php/Firewall

    I asked for priorities. Which overrides which. You can have the same exact simple rule in all sections with different actions. Which takes priority?

    These are different types of traffic. Apples vs Oranges.

    Access rules are only to the NGFW. The other rules will not affect traffic.
    Filter Rules are at Layer 3.
    Firewall Rules have conditions not available in the other filter rules since it is Layer 7.

    Layer 3 is before Layer 7.

    Cool

    It would be very helpful if you review https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OSI_model so that you understand how the different layers work and interact. After you grok this, feel free to answer back with any questions. I've been in network specifications for too long and would be glad to answer any more detailed questions you have.
