Changing the order in which rules are executed
You can change the order in which rules are executed by going to the Filter Rules or NAT Rules tabs of a folder or firewall and moving the rules within the same folder or on the same firewall or even into another folder or firewall.
You can select several rules at a time or a separator. Whenever a collapsed separator is selected, you are selecting all the rules contained in this separator.
- Select the rule, separator or rule set, and use the toolbar’s Up and Down buttons.
- Place the cursor on the left column of a rule, and drag and drop.
- Use the Cut/Copy/Paste buttons or the corresponding standard keyboard shortcuts. You can copy rules or separators from the active table or from parent folders.
