Why the option "Block Port Scan Attempt" works not under IDS and available as a part of Firewall Module? Because when I turned off Firewall, IDS still remain ON but the "Block Port Scan Attempt" becomes inactive. And what option detects Network Attack which are not limited to port scan attempts?

Hi ONT,

I guess you know by now that IDS is related to Active Virus Control, not to Firewall, although it's located under the Firewall settings (if you check previous Bitdefender versions like 2011, 2010 and older, you will notice that the Advanced configuration for Antivirus includes AVC and IDS, on the same panel).

This is why Block Port scans turns off when you disable the Firewall, but not the same happens with IDS.
