ENS Firewall for mac - regex and wild card support on file path and FQDN

I found that Application Specific Rule and FQDN based rule can be created with 10.6.x or higher but it is unclear if a full regex or wildcard based rules can be created for both FilePath and FQDNs.

Examples for the needs:

1. Allow/Block Rule with FilePath containing version number



2. Allow/Block Rule with trusted/untrusted folder with wild card or trusted app name with wild card




3. Allow/Block Rule with wildcard on the 3rd level FQDNs :

Hi @youngpae1 

Thank you for posting on the community.

Unfortunately FQDN cannot be used wildcard.

If you need more assistance, I would recommend to raise a service request for your question.
