14.x Firewall / “Ignore all Firewall rules not listed in this profile” Special
We sadly noticed, that version 14.x uses the Windows Firewall. In Version 13.x in our view the firewall worked much better.
In short, we only want to allow incoming traffic to the clients which we defined in Policy Manager. Any other incoming traffic should be blocked.
We set the option “Ignore all Firewall rules not listed in this profile” to true.
In normal circumstances this works.
But we found a problem with Dameware (this should be seen as a placeholder for similar applications).
When we connect through the allowed incoming rule to the client with "Dameware Mini Remote Control" the first time, DW installs an extra Firewall rule on the client.
The installed Firewall Rule allows incoming Traffic to the client from any destination to the application c:\windows\dwrcs\dwrcs.exe
This new rule is installed as an local GPO, so the option “Ignore all Firewall rules not listed in this profile” does not work and so the new rule is active.
Have you got an idea or solution to prevent this ?
