Well that depends on what O/S you're using. For me back when I was using
the Linksys router and BlackIce which neither one can stop outbound by
setting rules, I used IPsec that's on the O/S.
IPsec can stop inbound and outbound by port, protocol and IP.
The use of the AnalogX Secpol file makes IPsec simple to use based on the
rules that have been created.
IPsec is active on the machines protecting the LAN.
