Temporarily disable the firewall

If you are a member of the SophosAdministrator group, you may need to temporarily disable the firewall for maintenance or troubleshooting, and then re-enable it.

Sophos Endpoint Security and Control retains the settings you make here, even after you restart your computer. If you disable the firewall, your computer is unprotected until you re-enable it.

  1. On the Home page, under Firewall, click Configure firewall.

    For information about the Home page, see About the Home page.

  2. Under Configurations, select the Allow all traffic check box next to the primary or secondary location.
