Firewall rules: specify executable by path

I have a set of programs I'd like to prevent from accessing the network. These all sit under a common parent directory. I'd like to be able to say, essentially, "apply this rule to any application coming from this path (or any of its subdirectories)".

For example, setting "C:\MyUntrustedApps\" would affect the behavior of, say, "C:\MyUntrustedApps\application1.exe" as well as "C:\MyUntrustedApps\app2\otherapp.exe".

  • Hello @CWuestefeld and welcome to the Community!

    Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us.

    Have you tried to configure such a rule by entering the program path from the Bitdefender Firewall settings?

    More information regarding the Firewall module is available at the link below:

    Let us know how it went.

    Best regards.

  • Yes, I've done this. The thing is, it does not allow me to just specify a path. I mean, I can select it. But after I do, the Save button is disabled. The Save button only works when I've selected the specific .exe file.
