Dumb Firewall/Network Lock Question

Recommended Posts

You provided too little information to answer this question.

A firewall can do various tasks, everything from security (whitelist/blacklist) to connectivity (forwarding/bridging).

What do you want to accomplish?

 

If the goal is making your machine unreachable from outside, that is already done as soon as you connect to the VPN.

If the goal is making sure no traffic can go out bypassing the VPN connection, network lock takes care of that part.

Thank you for the response. What I want to accomplish is to make sure that any and all connections take place through the VPN only. It seems that is specifically what Network Lock ensures.
