The Popup



A This button shows you the host name. if you tap on it a new view will appear and Firewall iP will try to get the WhoIs-information for that domain.


B This field will show you the requested URL if possible. C This selector will save rules in 3 different modes:


a) the normal mode: the hostname showed in A will be used for the rule


b) *domain: a rule which will effect the domain and all subdomains


c) *.domain: a rule which will effect only subdomain


When the hostname has more than 3 parts, another popup will appear, allowing you to select the parts you want to use. D This seletor gives you the ability to apply a rule to all ports or only the port mentioned. The rule will get the port attached. example: ''. If you tap on the (i)-button next to the selector a list of the most common used ports will appear.


E pretty self explaining. Note that Allow/Deny session means to allow/deny the connection until you exit the app; Allow/Deny all sess. means to allow/deny all connections until you exit the app.
