Windows Firewall Rules

Hi guys,

I am trying to figure it out how to create windows firewall rules to block one application for any external connection but only connects to the server where is data base located.

I tried already to Deny all connection and then allow only to the server connection so there were 2 rules, but it seems that the deny has first priority, so I cannot connect the application to the server with these rules.

When I create only allow to the server connection its actually connecting to the external IP too.

What am I doing wrong here?

Outgoing rules, the access by the application will depend on the routing rules for the entire system.
Commonly outgoing rules are allow all.
to restrict this application from accessing external resources to your network, you would need to enforce this rule on your perimeter firewall  if you know what IP:port those attempts will be coming from. Alternatively, block all and require them to go through a proxy. if the application will follow the internet options, proxy settings, it will once again be able to access external resources.

If you could be more descriptive of what the application is and who can and who can not access ....

Arnold,

I have figure out it.

I blocked all IPs ranges and only allowed my IP range to communicate, after that it blocked all connections and only allowed this application to connect the  server.
