I’d like some help on command line parameters to enable different modes of firewall.
my broadband connection is set up such that is always connected, i do not have to dial.
and my happy hour is from 2 am to 8 am (unlimited download time). which is why i have scheduled my torrent and other download applications to run between the above timings.
now, i usually wake up and i manually close the applications at about 7:30 am.
but on days i fail to up wake before 8, my downloads continue while eating up my bandwidth quota of the non free time.
so i figured if i could automatically turn on the “block all” mode of the firewall at 7:30 … no network activity would be allowed right? in other words am stopping all download activity well before 8am.
to make something like this happen first off i need to know the command line parameters to turn on the “allow all”, “custom” and “block all” modes.
and then saving the command line instruction as a batch file to be executed through scheduled tasks at a desired time
so now if anybody could please tell me the command line parameters for enabling / toggling between different firewall policies?
thanks a lot , have a great day!
