Ok, what I really meant was if it is possible to only list rules that are not created by Windows default.

As an example, if software1 and software2 require some ports open in windows firewall, I want to list those rules. The problem is that I don't know every software on all machines and which rules that are opened by which software.

Thats why I wonder if it can be done automatically but I guest I have to check each software one by one and list those ports.




You could scan the registry keys and exclude the "known" rules from the report you'd write for that.

I don't see why not. You'd have to create a custom scan of the specific registry keys though

Indeed. It's not scanned by default, but you can do it provided you utilize custom registry scanning.
