Prevent IP leakage on VPN disconnection

Prevent IP leakage on VPN disconnection

Postby erazer » Sat Feb 25, 2012 3:00 am


Could some please explain me how to configure W7FC that certain applications can only connect through my VPN connection and not through my real ISP? So, in case the VPN connection fails it should block the application instantly. There are some instructions for other firewalls but I didn't figure it out for W7FC.

Thanks in advance

We are not sure the VPN only access can be enough for an application.
Most probably the application would require some local resources (as localhost, available.
Anyway to enable VPN only for a particular application (Plus/Sever version required) you would have to create the following zone and apply the zone to the application.
The zone with a single enabling (Result=Enable) rule. The rule has to have a single VPN address IP range parameter. E.g or so. The ip range must be known for you.
The range can be seen in the related adapter settings, check IP and mask of the VPN adapter please
ZoneResult =Disable ( disable all the rest communication)
