hi guys,
just a general firewall question

I got a rule as -outgoing rule

protocol is TCP - source IP any- source port any- dest IP any-  dest port 443

is this gonna make all tcp protocols to use only port 443
I mean many protocols using tcp - like (http,ftp,telnet,ssh,imap, etc ) all gonna use only port 443 while going out. ???
or it’s going to route only web traffic which uses http/https over 443 port ??
