Hi Daniel,

You can't block the packets sent from the ME using a firewall on the
same machine where the ME hardware is located.
This is because it is using your ethernet card out-of-band to your OS.
So all packets sneak through the hardware undetected.

But you can put a firewall on a router externally to block ME packets
escaping your network if you know where they come from.
