Next Gen Firewall Expert Rules

ZA Next Gen Firewall Developers,

Please reinstate "Expert Rules" in ZA Next Gen Firewall.

Before Next Gen came along, ZA Firewall had a facility for adding "expert rules". This seems to have disappeared in the Next Gen version of ZA Firewall. I had made use of this functionality and find the current functionality of ZA Next Gen Firewall lacking. The current option of Zone Rules only uses two Zones - "Public" and "Trusted". The third Zone that was previously available was "Blocked". Thus currently there appears to be no way to completely block 2-way access to/from a source. The problem with only having the Zone Rules is that it is only 2-way. There is no option for different settings depending on the direction of traffic. The "Expert Rules" allowed this.

Thanks, Peter.
