McAfee HIPS Firewall Rules question

Hi -

I have all my Outgoing/Incoming applications and connection rules (Blocked and Allow rules) in place via the McAfee HIPS Firewall policy.

Now, if I add an ALL OUTBOUND rule with ANY IP Prorocol with Service (L) and Service (R) as being ANY and Address as ANY as well, will this overide all of the pre-set rules that I placed?

Thanks

Depends where it's placed. HIPS Firewall goes from top to bottom. If traffic finds a rule that will allow/block at the top it won't continue going down the list of rules.

Its placed in the middle, but definately not at the top.

Will you have other rules for outbound traffic? My suggestion is to put an ALL OUTBOUND rule at the bottom of your policy.
