How to block an outbound connection for a program?

Hi all. Can’t seem to solve this. I need to set up a block for an outbound connection.

In CIS 6.X;

  1. Open CIS interface
  2. Click the TASKS button (top right hand corner)
  3. Click FIREWALL TASKS
  4. Click BLOCK APPLICATION
  5. Navigate to and select application you want to block.
  6. DONE!!

Hope this helps,

That will block the entire application won’t it? The user says they just wanted to block an outbound connection from the application.

You’re quite right - it would block both inbound and outbound connections.

To set up inbound only, you would need to set up a global rule in the firewall config that specifically blocked outbound only and allowed inbound to the application.

This would normally only be applicable to a server app or a P2P and the concept of a server/P2P app that is blocked outbound eludes me. :wink:

The OP hasn’t come back saying the original proposed solution isn’t what he was looking for, so I’m hoping he actually wanted to kill all connections from an app.
