Local Hosts

If there are Ethernet devices on the system, the Local Hosts page allows you to configure whether the firewall rules apply to connection requests sent to each device. If the device connects the system to a local area network behind a firewall and does not connect directly to the Internet, select Yes. If the Ethernet card connects the system to a cable or DSL modem, it is recommended that you select No.
