No, the information is redundant. But if there is above a rule which
explizit allows traffic which is blocked by this rule, this traffic
has to go through.

Checkpoint evaluates its rule form top to down and first ( not best )
match is taken.

But what is this for a rule-design where Ports/traffic are explicit denied
if it
was not an alert-rule ? Normaly all traffic has to be forbidden and
I have to *allow* traffic by rules.
