Apply local firewall rules (Domain)' policy setting


  • it's a req for admin:

    Apply local firewall rules (Domain)' policy setting enables local administrators to create local firewall rules that apply along with firewall rules set by Group policy. As this setting can affect overall security configurations locally, this should be set according to the needs of the business.

  • Hi,
    I don't quite understand your requirement here. Could you please elaborate a bit?
    It is recommend that you allow users to create and use local firewall rules. If you and the IT staff can create and maintain the list of firewall rules for all permitted applications and deploy them by using GPOs then you can set this value to No.
