6.Name the rule, your new rule can be called anything it is best to name it something you are able to identify easily.

7.Select the profile in which the rule applies too, our VPS's are set to the Domain profile by default which means a rule that applies only to Public or Private will not apply to your externally facing VPS network. We suggest that you select a combination of Domain and private or public or all three.
