Feature Request : Allow firewall exceptions on high

Hi Plusnet,
Have been a long time user and very happy with your service. One thing I would love is if we could select inbound ports to allow on your high firewall setting. I run pfsense here and it's a great firewall but I use your firewall too to stop unwanted probes / hack attempts from even hitting pfsense. Unfortunately I do use a couple of inbound ports so I can't use high. Please give this some consideration as I can't be the only one with this requirement.

Thanks John.

Re: Feature Request : Allow firewall exceptions on high

I second this feature request.   👍

 

People don't realise just how many unsolicited port probes per second actually occur constantly 24/7.

Looking at pfSense firewall logs, I often see hundreds of blocked attempts per minute over my four WAN addresses.

 

It would be great if the Plusnet firewall was more configurable and able to block the majority of these intrusion attempts ever reaching my VDSL connection.
