Is there anyway to block specific ip/websites that an application access without me editing my host file manually?
Blocking hosts is a common request and we’re working on adding this feature in the future.
For the moment you can use the following syntax to block an ip to the windows firewall:
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“telemetry_sqm.telemetry.microsoft.com” dir=out action=block remoteip=188.8.131.52 enable=yes
I would be intrested to get have this as an option in the alert popup.
Sometimes you want to block access to certain advertising/telemetry hosts but not to those necessary for the application.
A allow every host but this list and block everything except those hosts, with wildcards would be great.
