Why are some flows not blocked automatically

    Did you insert a allow rule when you did the port forward? when you do that, it pretty much gives an exception to all traffic. (except the really bad actors, those will always be blocked) The ones that does web scans or crawlers will be allowed.  You can find out more here https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500009502622-How-to-limit-access-to-open-port-or-port-forwarded-

    If you are running a web service or proxy to a web service, the amount of data is really managed by your server, so you need to look at the service running. 

    If you worry other ports are getting in, double-check your "allow" rules. you should have very very little of them.
