    how to add a outbound rule to allow windows update to exchange information


    Seems windows firewall is blocking windows update. I ran troubleshooting for windows update in the control panel and it reported this. So can anyone help me to add the rule, I don't know which file under which directory windows update is using while exchanging information with the server. Any help is appreciated.

    :)

    Windows Firewall issue with outbound rule

    We block all outbound here for a number of good reasons beyond the scope of this issue.

    We are on win10 1703. A new A/D site was added during the prior week and I found that all of the management tools for DNS,DHCP, etc failed with various errors such as access denied.

    The firewall logs show that port 135 outbound was being blocked.

    This is in spite of the fact that a rule is in place to allow this traffic.

    I modified the rule to explicitly define the remote addresses rather than using the "Intranet" term which resulted in no behavior change.

    Adding a ANY/ANY/ANY rule allows traffic.

    Do we have a bug?

    Windows 10 Firewall won't keep my inbound/outbound rules

    Hi,

    I realize the inconvenience caused to you regarding the Windows Firewall. I will certainly assist you.

    I suggest you to restart the Windows firewall service and check if it helps.

    Follow the below steps for the same.

    • Press Windows key + R simultaneously for Run.
    • Type services.msc and then Enter.
    • Right click on the Windows firewall services and then restart the services and check if it helps.
    If the issue still persists then I suggest you to remove and then read the Windows fire wall rule.

    how to add a outbound rule to allow windows update to exchange information

    Windows Firewall: Doesn't show blocking rules

    Hello!

    Today I've blocked all connections of a program by creating a outbound rule in Windows Firewall. However, I now wish to remove it. The problem: I can't find that newly created rule anywhere in the list. The rule does take an effect, since deactivating the
    Firewall lets the program run properly. I can only see rules in the list that "allow" stuff, but not those who block things.

    What I have tried so far:

    - All filters set to "Show all" within the Firewall

    - Created the same rule again, doesn't show up

    - Created a rule that allows the program, shows up

    Any solutions?
