I have created some general firewall rules that
allow HTTP:80, HTTPS:433, DNS:53,
DHCP:67/68, and DENY everything else.
From my understanding then is that
ANY program that I give ALLOW access to the Internet Zone still has to follow those rules. For example if I say Adobe Reader has Access to Trusted/Internet and it tries to connect using port 76, it would get blocked.. is this correct?
If I want to lock down a specific program further, I can create Expert rules for that program. So for example if I want Internet Explorer to access
HTTP:80 but nothing else, I could create expert rules that allow HTTP:80 but Deny Everything Else....is this correct?
Assuming my understanding is correct... here is my actual question.... I have
a rule that says ALLOW HTTP:80 and DENY everything else from my general Firewall configuration. Do have have to continue to duplicate these same rules over and over again for every individual program?
