I posted this at StackOverflow:http://stackoverflow...s-firewall-exception
I need to open up the Windows Firewall for outbound connections for an application I'm writing.
The best answers I've been able to locate are here:
The problem is that method only creates an inbound rule, and not an outbound rule. (Both the C# and InnoSetup script use the same method.) This is entirely useless for me.
The default behaviour for the Windows Firewall is to allow outbound traffic, but that doesn't guarantee that someone won't change that.
I would prefer to do this in the installer (using InnoSetup) rather than doing it in C#.
Did I miss something?
Does anyone know how to create an outbound rule?
Does anyone here know the answer?
