    Thank you.  So unless I want to limit the access to a certain region or IP or something, I would leave "Allow on Firewall" turned on to allow it to be wide open.   The device I have needs incoming connections from all over the world since it a peer to peer network type device.

    Yes, your statement is correct. By default, most people want the behavior of allowing anything to come in. The article I've linked is simply an optimization for those who require extra filtering.
