The Homeland tab allows you to add or remove Processes that are watched by the Homeland Protection feature.
By default, the HTML5 service is watched.
The Watched Ports settings allows you to add ports watched by the Homeland Protection Feature. By default, Homeland Access Protection listens to default ports used for connecting remotely to a server. These ports include RDP (3389), Telnet (23) and VNC. Homeland supports the following VNC providers: Tight VNC, Ultra VNC, Tiger VNC and Real VNC, which are not related whatsoever with RDS-Tools.
The Homeland Detection Mechanism setting defines how Homeland detects inbound connections from unauthorized countries, using one of the three differents detection mechanisms: - Windows API - Event Tracing for Windows - Built-In Firewall
On the one hand, Event Tracing for Windows is an efficient kernel-level tracing facility that capture network events in real time. Event Tracing for Windows is recommended with Windows Firewall enabled (default).
On the other hand, Windows API works great given any specific network configuration but may add a constant pressure on CPU depending on the amount of active connections. Please note that Windows API is not compatible with IPv6 yet.
Built-In Firewall enables user-mode capturing and dropping of network packets sent to the Windows network stack. When the Built-In Firewall is configured to block unwanted connections, it is recommended to use it to enforce Homeland's allowed countries.
