Process Exclusions for outbound traffic

This policy setting defines processes from which outbound network traffic will not be inspected. Process names should be added under the Options for this setting. Each entry must be listed as a name value pair, where the name should be a string representation of a process path and name. As an example, a process might be defined as: "C:\Windows\System32\App.exe" . The value is not used and it is recommended that this be set to 0.

Supported on: At least Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 or Windows RT
