Thank you for the answer.
I have one more question regarding auto creation of firewall rules.
Is this correct, that auto create in inbound creates 1 firewall rule?
Looks like it creates only inbound communication and not outbound. If I
understand correctly the meanings of "source" & "destination" in
firewall set? So does that mean I must create manually outbound firewall
Thank you in advance for your kindness.
