Remarks

All interfaces are firewall-enabled. 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.

When you pass a profile type obtained from the CurrentProfileTypes property, make sure that you pass only one profile type to get_BlockAllInboundTraffic and put_BlockAllInboundTraffic. Note that get_CurrentProfileTypes can return multiple profiles.
