If you hardware filewall is recognized by build-in windows firewall,
you can use ICF for this.
Start from "Platform SDK: Windows Firewall" section of the MSDN

Hi,

I dont think there is a standar way of doing this, so the answer is no.

You may add support for proxies ( socks5, etc ) a lot of apps do this.
