Firewall Rules for two different accounts in two different regions?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I recently purchased a licence of the K-suite for my home and I am facing some trouble setting the Firewall up. 

To force my game to enter in a different region in the globe I use a rule in Windows firewall to block a number of IP ranges in order to prevent my game from joining any local servers therefore it will seek the nearest server, in another region. 

I tried to make a couple of rules for testing but there is no way to place a range of ips directly in the field of the rule and with some research I was able to change this 58.67.0.0-58.67.255.255 (invalid) into this  58.67.0.0/16 (valid). The next issue, after I placed a couple of rules (there should be a total of13) is that the k-firewall does not appear to have an easy on/off switch to the rule. So, as far as I went, I would have to create and then delete the rules (all 13). 

The first question then is: Is there an easy way to do this? One rule to rule them all?

And the second is: IF there are not, by turning off the k-firewall enables the windows firewall automaticaly or should I perform certain tasks in order to change from one to the other?

thank you

Why do you have to cancel them? Next to each rule there is the "Status" tab where you can deactivate or activate it.

If you deactivate the Kaspersky Firewall, Windows should notify you about activating a Firewall on your PC. Anyhow, you can go in the Windows Defender Security Center and check.

Thank you for answering :)

I play on 2 different accounts in two different regions, thats why I have to enable/disable the rules constantly. 
In the windows firewall, I just click one button and voila, the rule is up/down allowing me to chose where I will play in less than 10s. 

The solution you showed solves part of the problem, but will require me to create 13 rules, one for each set of IPs. I will try it even so, after the rules are created 13 clicks are ok, i guess :)

I rather have K-suite fully functional :P 

Thanks again and I will reply here if the solution works :)

Your suggestion worked and, despite the work on doing the rules this way, activate/deactivate is quite simple. Thank you so much for the tip.

to enable/disable all, I can select them all (shift click) and right button to disable them. Tested and worked :)
