How can I setup windows 7 firewall so that it blocks ALL inbound and outbound traffic of all kinds, unless I am connected to a network that is designated in network options as public?
I'd like to block Home and Private. Thanks for any advice.
The following worked when I tried it.
On windows 7 Home Premium:
Click on Finish
And now you have an inbound Rule that blocks All Application from accessing any IP on any Port on Domain and Private (Home or Work or Private Networks)
And now you have to make exactly the same rule under "Outbound Rules"
Note (Credit to barlop): Although Windows Firewall does block a lot of things, it does not block ALL traffic. Barlop has added that WireShark still detects some traffic in and out of the system even when everything meant to be blocked using either method.
