This page explains about Bitdefender firewall exceptions (or rules).Usually, a firewall exception is used to allow specific traffic on a network. For example, if you find traffic is trustable on your network, then you can add it to the firewall exceptions list to allow it. To do so, you need the sender and receiver’s IP address & the type of traffic (web or SSH).
