    See the notes on page 1
    You have to whitelist your file and printer sharing service. You can try to wihitelist spoolsv.exe (system32 dir}

    Windows Firewall with advanced security - new rule - has predefined sets of rules that can be helpful. Know what it adds to the group and remove or choke as much as you can to your local network.

    WFC has an event viewer, resource monitor and a notification section that can also be helpful.

    How do I install the core networking + block windows updates settings to my firewall?

    I installed a clean Windows 10 installation and created a .reg file with the content at the first post.

    Everything is still able to connect to the internet.

    Sure :eek:

    I'm using the latest Windows 10 Threshold 2 in VMware Workstation 12, isn't it working with it?

    Could someone please instruct me to get this working?

    Has anyone tested this method with wireshark or in a VM to confirm nothing to MS gets out?

    The same is happening to me using LTSB 2016, It doesn't add anything when executing the REG file, even disabled UAC... hope OP gets updated to newer versions in case of any change in windows firewall/settings...

    Yeah, but it is not supposed to add some basic networking rules? Like DNS or whatever, I can see it clearly just by reading the REG file. Even in previous pages there is a screenshot posted by someone where it shows he had those rules added...

    So, what's the point on adding the REG File, since wfc ignores those rules completely?. I mean, I can clearly see all the added rules in wf.msc but they just don't work since wfc creates its own rules, or am I missunderstanding concepts? or just don't adding them will not get internet connection at all?

    Thanks anyway, those were too many questions, I was testing in a VM to realize if it makes any difference using or not the reg file, but it ended up with tons of bugs with the wfc lmao, according to what OP says, it works for avoiding the pre-whitelisted options by default from the firewall, but I honestly wanted to know if it does any difference if you just set up wfc for blocking everything without dealing with reg files.

    You can't beat the system. The more restrictive you make it, the more restricted you'll be yourself in using it. As always in technology, nothing beats a reasonable compromise.
