Firewall: block an application except when using VPN

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am trying to configure the personal firewall so that it blocks an application except when I am connected via VPN.  Once VPN is connected then the application should be allowed.


I can achieve this using Windows Firewall as it allows the setting of a scope that matches a local IP address assigned to the VPN, but it seems there is no way to do this with the firewall in Smart Security 7.  Does anybody know of a way to do this?


I have tried enabling learning mode and then looking at the rules generated when using the VPN and when not using the VPN and I can't see anything that would help me lock it down.


Many thanks.

Perhaps you could create a new zone to be authenticated automatically if specific parameters of the network are matched. Then create a new firewall profile, create the desired firewall rule and set it to be used in this firewall profile. Next, in the zone authentication setup select to switch to this new firewall profile when the zone gets authenticated.

Should you need further assistance, let me know.
