    Hello.
    Does anyone have an updated rule that allows windows update for the new windows 10 1803 version that can share with me, please?
    I tried the one posted from the op on the first page but it is blocking windows update to check for them.
    Thanks in advance.

    ICMP is required by IPv6, but it is only optional for IPv4, I block it.

    Seems like such thing is common nowadays. Probably we should thank Google for making every competing tech giant there to be a "software as a service"
    Even Steam/Valve is jumping to the action with different games, some paid for and some free, from different developers and publishers, sneak up this "Red Shell" thing which is basically Windows 10 Telemetry but even more shameless in promoting it (basically we, Red Shell, will gather all the data about you while playing in order to measure current trends and giving the data to publishers and developers muehehehehe).

    If there is other choice, some people said "use Linux use Linux wululululululululululu" but Linux and FOSS/GNU future is bleak due to how increasingly secluded, unfriendly, and hostile toward today's network approach Richard Stallman is, how most software moved from GNU to crowdfunding, freemium, and "proprietary freeware", even less people willingly wrote software for price of TOTALLY FREE AND OPEN SOURCE. Otherwise use the overpriced Macbook therefore become a corporate whale, and even then they are pressured by the FBI just because a suspect is using their product and FBI needs decryption.

    Windows Update ips are country dependent, and will also change randomly.

    Based on the comments by @Pyr3x and @M07REX, I cannot tell which is real and which is merely a conspiracy theory.

    I know that telemetry is objectionable by many, but going as far as to hunt down people using cracked software? This is confusing me and may cause some people to be more paranoid than the reality.

    I would in my opinion leave out the rhetoric and focus on how to disable telemetry entirely.

    Hi all,
    the first post seem to be gone, just a dot there.
    I am looking for a bare set of rules that enables Windows Update and the MS Store but nothing else.
    Preferable, importable via WFC.
    Thanks!
