Condor itself does nothing to restrict connectivity of jobs to resources
on your network.

A job's connectivity to services not on the machine running the job is
limited to your machine and network policies. If you have a
machine-based firewall that blocks outgoing access to web services, your
job will not be able to access these services. If you have a network
firewall that blocks access to the network where the web service sits,
your jobs will not be able to contact this service.
