    Default How can i configure windows Firewall to allow outgoing connections to https sites ?

    Hi !

    How can i configure Windows Firewall to allow outgoing connections to https-sites ?

    I have set Windows Firewall (WF) to block all outgoing connections, normal "surfing" with Firefox (FF) works as i have set a rule to allow FF.
    But i have a problem with an SSL-webbsite (https://...), even though i have explicitly set a rule for that specific IP, WF still blocks FF.
    So i suspect that i might have missed something in the settings....

    Any ideas ?

    Open a port in Windows Firewall
    Just walk through the article and allow Port number 443.

    Try 'Tiny Wall' . It makes your WIN 7 firewall pass GRC Leak Test with out clicking on any pop-ups. It works. See info. below.

    What makes TinyWall special?
    TinyWall includes a combination of features that sets it apart from both commercial and freeware firewalls.
    TinyWall does not annoy you with popups at all, yet it is still extremely easy to add exceptions to your firewall rules.
    TinyWall actively blocks hundreds of trojans, viruses and worms.
    TinyWall does not require you to know about ports, protocols and application details.
    TinyWall makes use of network zones, allowing you to specify different behavior when you’re at home, at work or in the public.
    TinyWall prevents malicious programs from modifying the settings of Windows Firewall.
    TinyWall uses Windows’ own firewall for filtering and does not install drivers or other kernel components.

    Thanks, but i donīt want any "new" firewall.
    The question was: "How can i configure Windows Firewall to allow outgoing connections to https-sites ?"
    Also, look at my second post above: "anyway, problem solved today." ....

    What was your solution? Was there something you missed checking/unchecking?

    You keep your Windows 7 firewall, Tiny Wall just controls it with better security .

    I donīt need any 3rd-party software to pass Gibsonsīs Leaktest.
    Windows firewall passes the test.

    And once again, The question was: "How can i configure Windows Firewall to allow outgoing connections to https-sites ?"
    I didnīt ask for any 3rd-party software to do it.....

    "Tiny Wall just controls it with better security"
    Better ???
    Simpler maybe...
    Windows firewall is good, just a PITA to configure.
