what do advanced switches do?

eg: if Target Port indicates 443, and I turn it off, and then allow connection, will connection rule allow for all Target Ports in future?

To ask the question in another way: Is having the switches on limiting the rule to the indicated switch value? Turning off will make a rule for any value that the switch applies to?

edit: what does "skip" or "skip all" do?

It should, but right now v2 is suffering from a bug where WFN will sometimes forget rules so it is hard to tell if something like this actually works right now. When this bug gets fixed, we can test this out.

As for the "skip" and skip all" function, that will just ignore the rule for now and you can come back to it later or whenever you re-open the connection again. It is useful for those connections you are unsure you want to allow or block or whatever.

A new version has just been released, containing fixes for the switches. If you were having trouble getting them to work properly, I suggest you try the latest Alpha release.
