Windows 7: internet programs shared over a network

internet programs shared over a network

hello, I was hoping someone here could please help me.
I have a shared folder to share my programs over a network and I'm trying to set up the firewall for program control. If I have it set all to default then programs run from the network share can connect to the internet fine, however if I set the default outbound to 'block' then any program I run from the network wont connect to the internet even when I set both outbound and inbound rules to allow it. I can run programs locally with an outbound rule to allow fine, but any program running over the network share get blocked to the internet.
So if someone could please give me a hand figureing out whats being blocked and if it can be fixed while maintaing the default outbound blocked, I would be most appreciative. And sorry if this is has already been covered, I've been googling the problem for a few hours but just get general file sharing problem results
thanks in advance Sri
