    Thank you Cudni but its detail I need..in my example I say how can I block like Microsoft as an example..what part of the system allows me to do that. to disallow connection or outgoing contact. I appreciate the time you have already given me..but its still too vague for me..sorry..

    Hello artinusa
    It sounds like you are going for a Policy based firewall, in that way you have complete control what to accept and waht to block. It sound good but there is a something you should consider.If you do not fully understand to evaluate the firewall messages given to you, you can accept something to your system that you don't what.(wurse case scenario...malware). My point is just, be careful what you accept. :)
    Best Regards
