Dear all

I have some questions regarding Windows Firewall and Ports

 

1.

How do I best close Ports in Windows?

With the Outbound / Indbound firewall rules?

 

2.

Deleting a rule is that the same as if is not activated?

Or does it get activated when the App requests it?

 

3.

League of Legends app is neither in Outbound or Indbound rules

How can I still connect to their servers and play?

 

4.

Hearthstone was deactivated in both Inbound and Outbound rules

I could still connect to it

How can that be?

 

I have the same Firewall profile as the attached photo

 

Thank you for replying

 

Best regards
