The Rule Wizard is accessible through the wizard tool button
at the right-top of the application window. It allows you to easily create a new rule
or modify an existing rule.
You can also rename an existing rule by following these steps:
- Choose Modify an existing rule;
- Select the rule you want to rename;
- Enter the new name of the rule and click Next;
This brings you to the second page of the Rule Wizard, in which you can decide whether the rule
shall be put into a group.
Note: rules without a group are inactive and meaningless.
Click Next, you will be able to define the client side IP address and port
of the rule.
Note: client-side IP and port can be a single IP/port pair or it can be range of IP addresses and/or
a range of port numbers (1 through 65535). When a connection is attempted on the client side, there
is a single IP/port associated with such a connection attempt. If such a single IP/port falls into
the range defined on this page, it will be considered a match and the rest of the rule will be applied
to the connection.
Click Next, you will be able to define the properties of the Application Server
for the rule.
Note: Application server does not have to be one running on the same machine where K-Secure VPN™ Server is
running. It can be any IP/port pair that the server can reach. In addition, if the application server
is running on a client machine that is not always connected to the server, you can put a check on the
"This is a proxy agent" checkbox.
Click Next, you will be able to define the miscellaneous properties of the rule.
Note: Rules can be enabled or disabled. If the rule is disabled, it will not participate in rule matching.
Note: In case you want to allow any connections after the first connection is allowed, put a check mark in
the "Allow multiple connections" checkbox. This is required for protocols (such as FTP) that use multiple
connections for a single operation.
When you are done with the above steps, you can click Finish. This brings you to the
final confirmation page as shown below:
