NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade allow-block-remove-firewall -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade allow-block-remove-firewall -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Description

The point of this program is to make adding/removing programs to/from your Windows firewall easier than ever.

This program will add a right click option to all .exe and .com programs, allowing you to allow, block or remove a program from the Windows firewall in 1 click.

But as the rest of my programs I have gone an extra step, "Shane" style if you will :-D

When you add a program to the firewall, all rules that have the same file path will be removed first and then a new single rule is added.
This can greatly help when a user has multiple different rules for a program and they don't realize it.
A lot of times those rules can conflict and create problems.
Now all those extra rules are removed during the process.

Also when you allow a program through the firewall the settings in the rule are to allow any protocol, any port and allow edge transport.
Basically the settings in the rule are to let the program be fully allowed through.

Aside from allowing programs through you can also block them if need be.
Same thing happens, all current rules that point to the same program are removed and a single new rule is added that blocks the program on every protocol and every port.

And just for those users who like to keep things clean, there is also an option to remove all rules for a program from the firewall.
Nice feature to have when you are uninstalling a game or program and don't want the rules in the firewall any more.

All 3 of these options are just 1 click.

You can also select multiple .exe and .com files at once to make things even faster. All done through Windows Explorer.

How TO INSTALL:

Extract all files from the zip folder. Make sure to save them in a folder that wont be moved or deleted. (Chocolatey will do this for you.)

Once extracted run the Right_Click_Options.exe in the extracted folder and then in that program click on "Add Right Click Menu".

That's it! That will add the right click menu options to all .exe and .com files. Nothing is installed or written anywhere else.

To uninstall just run Right_Click_Options.exe again and click "Remove Right Click Menu" and then simply delete all the files in the program folder.

If for any reason you move the files to a new folder you need to run the "Add Right Click Menu" option again so the registry keys will be updated with the new file paths.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
