    Can i just enquire if anyone knows if it is possible to block outbound internet access to a specfic application via Windows Firewall present on XP-SP2.

    Is so how would i do it. As all i can find is for allowing blocked programs, not actually blocking allowed programs.

    Thanks
    Anthony

    Win XP Firewall has no outbound control ability. You can not control applications connection out with it but you could use IPSec - complicated and only with XP Pro I believe. If you want outbound control your best bet is to try a 3rd party firewall or something like appdefend.

    Here's one example site... I know MS has a KB article on it as well but don't remember it's spec number:
