I need some code that illustrates how to block all ports for a computer such that no (Zero) internet activity can occur. ( and then be able to turn them back on again, just like a Firewall blocking all ports).

if it's a lan connection, you could simply clear your gateway, so data can not route
(route delete 0.0.0.0)
and reset it after to your lan gateway
route add -p 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 (if .1 is your router/gateway)

Hey Sftweng,
thanks for the links. This will help a great deal. If you are interested, I will give you 300 more points if you take the Winsockfirewall code and create an sample application that has the following.

one form, two buttons.

Button 1 - Block all traffic
Button 2 - Enable traffic

Thats it.

While I havent looked at this code in great detail, it would appear that this is as simple as assigning a IP range rule from 0.0.0.1 to 255.255.255.255

I got slammed at work and dont have time to weed through all of this, so if you are interested in creating a sample that uses their code and any libraries, all I would need is the units necessary to make the sample work as well as any components they are dependant on and the above listed functionality.

Thanks for the help
