Firewalla Gold as router. I forward some ports to a server, which process has operated normally for about a year. In the last week my server disappeared from the internet. Checking blocks, it showed the network-level rule "Block Internet" was responsible. This is odd because either it worked normally with this before or else I accidentally set up the block while fiddling with a Purple adjacent (but not controlling) within the network. However, my query relates to rule priority. I thought that forwarding certain ports at a device level would override a network-level incoming internet traffic block. Is this not so? Allow on Firewall is on for each forwarding rule.
Pausing the general block rule makes things visible as they should be, so it seems the port forwarding with "Allow on Firewall" is insufficient despite apparent priority.
