A firewall can be enabled on each network interface to protect the server against unwanted access or attacks from the network.

Activate Firewall

A firewall can be enabled on each network interface as long as it is connected to the network. The "Activation" checkbox is found in the "Network" tab.

When you activate a firewall all incoming data traffic will be blocked.
