Re: Best secure Win 7 Firewall settings?

It depends on user requirements - there is not set rule.

Some suggest:

DNS - port 53
Internet - port 80 of course
FTP - port 20, 21
SSL - port 443
Games- need specific ports etc

What else do you have installed?

Whether you allow udp or tcp, well it depends.
Try both on/off to see what work or not then proceed.
