Create a secondary configuration

  1. Double-click the firewall policy you want to change.
  2. On the Welcome page of the Firewall Policy wizard, click Advanced firewall policy.
  3. Under Configurations, click Configure next to the location for which you want to configure the firewall.
  4. Select the Add configuration for a second location check box.

Now set up your secondary configuration. For information on how to do this, see Configuring the firewall.

We strongly advise caution when using local network rules as part of secondary configurations. If the computer is a laptop, and it is used out of the office, it may connect to an unknown local network. If this happens, firewall rules in the secondary configuration that use the local network as an address may inadvertently allow unknown traffic.
