Any news for this problem?
Perhaps I am misunderstanding something but that does not sound like the same issue I described. To clarify the meaning of the post you quoted, it was describing a series of steps which could be taken if the firewall fails to block anything after a reboot or an FC. What you seem to be describing is a situation where the opposite is occurring and everything rather than nothing is being blocked.
Without details about your device and scenario it’s hard to say what the problem could be but here are some general diagnostic steps:
- Remove 3rd party factors such as VPN and any other firewalls. Test without them, then only after resolving this issue, work on VPN configuration.
- Make sure you understand and are using the “allow selected” (whitelist) or “block selected” (blacklist) modes properly.
- Test with a simple app that has no dependencies elsewhere in the system. For example, an individual browser app might be good choice for testing web browsing but when downloading files the same browser may use the system components which would also have to be allowed.
- Use logging and toasts to see what is being blocked.
If those basic steps don’t work then you would want to provide more details about the device and specific steps to reproduce the problem (literally each action listed) and perhaps a log and exported rules.
[EDIT] Corrected assignment of labels, blacklist and whitelist, which I had inverted.
