Windows Firewall Policy in Windows Intune

Updated: December 17, 2012

Applies To: Windows Intune

The Windows Firewall policy template in the Windows Intune administrator console lets you create policies that you can use to control incoming and outgoing network traffic.

Windows Firewall policy

You can configure Windows Firewall settings in policies that you create based on this template and use the policies to deploy these settings to groups of computers. Windows Intune does not let you manage custom exceptions for Windows Firewall and does not affect non-Microsoft firewalls.

  1. If you delete a Windows Firewall settings policy that is deployed to computers, the values of the Windows Firewall settings configured by that policy on those computers are reset to the values that exist in the default state of the operating system.

  2. If Windows Intune policy and Group Policy are configured to manage the same setting on the computer, the Group Policy setting overrides the Windows Intune policy setting. For information about how to avoid conflicts between Windows Intune policy and Group Policy, see Planning Around Group Policy When Using Windows Intune.

For information about the settings available in the Windows Firewall policy template, see Windows Firewall Policy Reference for Windows Intune.

For information about how policies are applied, see How Windows Intune Policies are Applied.
