INetFwProfile::ExceptionsNotAllowed property

[The Windows Firewall API is available for use in the operating systems specified in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions. For Windows Vista and later, use of the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security API is recommended.]

Indicates whether the firewall should not allow exceptions.

This property is read/write.

Syntax


HRESULT put_ExceptionsNotAllowed(
  [in]   VARIANT_BOOL notAllowed
);

HRESULT get_ExceptionsNotAllowed(
  [out]  VARIANT_BOOL *notAllowed
);

Property value

True if the firewall should not allow exceptions.

Error codes

If the method succeeds, the return value is S_OK.

If the method fails, the return value is one of the following error codes.

NameMeaning
E_ACCESSDENIED

The operation was aborted due to permissions issues.

E_INVALIDARG

The method failed because a parameter was not valid.

E_OUTOFMEMORY

The method was unable to allocate required memory.

E_POINTER

The method failed because a pointer was not valid.

Remarks

All interfaces are firewalled. This means that all the exceptions; such as GloballyOpenPorts, Applications, or Services, which are specified in the profile, are ignored and only locally initiated traffic is allowed.

The resulting firewall status is determined by the combination of two levels: First check the global operation mode, then the mode on the interface of interest. Use the procedure Checking the Effective Firewall Status to determine the overall operational state.
