Best way to add endpoint firewall rule through Intune

Copper Contributor

Hello,

 

I have a 3rd party app deployed to all my endpoints that requires specific ports and servers allowed through the local devices outbound firewall. After looking through some Microsoft support articles for Intune, I did find something however it will only let me use IP Address ranges. I need to use DNS Hostnames instead.

 

Is there a way in Intune for me to do this through Endpoint Security -> Firewall that I'm missing or do I have to script something and deploy it through Intune instead?

Appreciate the assistance!

You can use the following: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/intune-customer-success/announcing-enhanced-control-for-confi... 

 

You can create “reusable settings” that can be based on FQDN's and use this in the normal Firewall configurations. Keep in mind you need to use Defender Antivirus and Network Protection needs to be in block or audit mode.
