Is it possible to auto block all applications incoming/outgoing internet connection except for example Firefox with default windows firewall?
I would like to block everything, even including windows update and other software updates.
I would like to allow only one web browser like firefox, chrome or opera.
How can I set up a config like this in windows Firewall? I see for blocking application but seems you need to add one by one and it is a tedious task.
What I wish to achieve is a "whitelisting" - meaning that I set up 1 rule on a firewall that says "block everything" (
deny all any/any, where
"deny" = don't let anything through,
"all" = all types of traffic,
"any/any" = any source, any destination).
Then, I set up the "white list" - meaning the list of good destinations that I want to allow.
A list of applications that I'd like to grant network access to them. Only application in this list will be able to communicate.
Notice that whitelisting is different than blacklisting, in that whitelisting blocks everything and then allows a few things later. With that definition in mind, everything is automatically blocked and cannot be used.
I'd like there should be an option or button to makes it possible for me to edit, add or delete application in this list manually.
I'm not an expert, So please try to give a detailed answer as I don't know anything about ports and some other expressions that I came across when googleing this.
