Description:

Allows administrators to use the Windows Firewall component in Control Panel to define a local program exceptions list. Windows Firewall uses two program exceptions lists; the other is defined by the "Windows Firewall: Define inbound program exceptions" policy setting.

If you enable this policy setting, the Windows Firewall component in Control Panel allows administrators to define a local program exceptions list.

If you disable this policy setting, the Windows Firewall component in Control Panel does not allow administrators to define a local program exceptions list.  However, local administrators will still be allowed to create firewall rules in the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security snap-in.  If you wish to prevent all locally created rules from applying, use the Group Policy Object Editor snap-in and configure Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Windows Firewall with Advanced Security to specify that local firewall rules should not apply.
