VPN50 Firewall Default Config

I have a question about the default policy "WAN to Zywall" which by default is enabled and allowing all traffic. Is there any reason why I should keep this enabled if I have higher level policies allowing the incoming traffic I need? What will happen if I disable it?

    Hi @RonAllen

    Yes, as PeterUK mentioned, the default WAN_to_Device security policy allows VPN-related traffic to enter the firewall.

    It mostly there for allowing VPN

  • Thanks for your reply Peter. So there is minimal risk for denying incoming traffic for this rule.
