need to block outgoing application(s)

Asked by Robert Frankel on 2009-02-11

I am trying to be able to lock my pc's firewall ( using administrator privileges) so that no outgoing mesages to the internet are allowed. this situation should be removeable by my unlocking the firewall. All i can find in Gufw are ways to block incoming traffic.
Is it possible to do what I want?

Thankyou

Bob

Yes, it's possible, but not with Gufw. You need change iptables (or use another GUI for iptables).

See some webs as:
