Hi, all community from Italy!
My English is not good, so I rely on your patience
I' am new with PCT Firewall that I installed two days ago, so here I'am to learn about this program. My first sensation is good.
Well: in order to block a range of IP addresses is this rule correct?
I experimented with a single IP and seem to be right (no connection), so is this the right way, or there is a better way to build this kind of rule?
Then, there is a limit number of IP addresses that can be blocked by PCT Firewall? Or in general some other known kind of problems regarding PCT Fw blocking IP addresses?

It is correct to define a range of IP in a rule and make it a blocking rule, meaning every packet from those IP will be blocked. You can have as many rules as you want with many ranges just note having too many rules will slow down the communication because for every packet we would need go through all your rules

Thank you for your reply hdavid!
But in Advanced Rules section, is the order of rules important?
I mean, in this section PCT FW cheks rules from high to low or not? Actually I put new rules (like block range IP for instance) in the low part, under pre-configured rules of PCT FW. What about the sense of this action? Is it correct or is not important to do it?
