I think it has something to do with private versus public network profiles. I'm not sure why yet, but I know that when an adapter is set to private it does not work and when it's set to public it does. I use profiles to restrict application connectivity, restricting all but private profiles.

Oh, I've done that many times. Everything seems to work if I set the adapter to public, then alter my firewall rules to block the private and domain profiles for apps I want blocked (rather than blocking the public and domain like it was set up before when the adapter was using the private profile). The only issue is I cannot figure out why that matters.

Different fw rules get applied when switching from network zones. Public is usually more restricted than private.

Sometimes you have to go into windows firewall advance rules window and look on there on why destiny is being blocked. Ignore the public rules since it’s obviously a private rule that is causing this issue.

Ok. I think I really have the solution this time. I thought the solution was the profile type. That was not the case. After I rebooted my issue was still there, even with the profiler change. But, as @alexandrud said, sometimes the allow rules don't work like they're supposed to. This was the case here. The allow rules, allow generically set, didn't work. I created 4 allow rules, UPD in/out and TCP in/out, and now destiny 2 work on the private profile.
