INetFwPolicy2::get_DefaultOutboundAction method

Specifies the default action for outbound traffic. These settings are Allow by default.

This property is read/write.

Syntax

HRESULT get_DefaultOutboundAction(
  NET_FW_PROFILE_TYPE2 profileType,
  NET_FW_ACTION        *action
);

Parameters

profileType

Return Value

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_DefaultOutboundAction and put_DefaultOutboundAction. Note that get_CurrentProfileTypes can return multiple profiles.
