Firewall policies/settings in windows containers RRS feed

  • Question

  • From what I read in some of firewall related posts in the forum, Firewall rules are propagated to containers from container host. Does firewall settings/policies also gets propagated to containers from host? I am looking for identifying firewall settings from inside the container and I am unable to see registry related to it. I can see them on host:

    I can run below command on container host to get firewall settings for public profile (and for all other profiles as well):

    Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsFirewall\PublicProfile

    However, when same command is run inside a container, this registry key does not exist. imfact, HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsFirewall\ key does not exist.

    Is it possible to read firewall settings from container?
