I set custom outbound firewall rule on Windows Server 2019 which deny all outgoing traffic to The rule is working for all until I set an exception in "Local principal/Exceptions". When I add an account or group there, EVERYBODY has access as if the rule is not existing.

Is this some bug or I didn't understand the concept?

I'm struggling with this for whole day. Thank you

EDIT: this is the fw rule:

Name    Group   Profile   Enabled   Action   Override   Program    Local Address      Remote     Address          Protocol   Local Port            Remote Port

test02  All     No        Block     No       Any        Any    Any        Any              Any        Any        Any        Any        Any        None

    Could add in your question the inbound and outbound rules by to use "Export List..." on the Windows Firewall. – jluizsouzadev May 21 at 14:30

  • Run wf.msc, go to Inbound Rules -> Export List ... and Inbound Rules -> Export List ... to save the rules as text file, so you could add they on your question. – jluizsouzadev May 21 at 14:48
  • Ok, I added the rule. – culter May 21 at 15:05
  • All rules, Inbound and Outbound. Is that possible for you? – jluizsouzadev May 21 at 15:10
