Using firewall rules in scipts

I'm searching for something similar to the scripting functions in the Windows Advanced Firewall. Something to apply certain rules, e.g.

netsh advfirewall set currentprofile firewallpolicy blockinbound,blockoutbound

How can I achieve this in the Norton Firewall function?

Re: Using firewall rules in scipts

Norton products are aimed at home users that would not need or even understand what a script is. It is meant as a set it and forget it product. There are some advanced settings for advanced users, but not what you are looking for.

Hm... since even Windows Home has this firewall feature, this is a weak argument. At least a CLI would not be too much to ask for. So which product to you recommend?

For the time being, how can I deactivate the Norton Firewall (only!) to use the windows firewall again? If I try to deactivate it in the Norton Settings, Windows Firewall is still deactivated.

Not being a Windows guru, can the Netsh command be used for any third party firewall? It may be tied to MS.
