This is because the Windows firewall is blocking the application from
connecting to the internet and/or making TCP/IP calls.

If the firewall is blocking the network traffic, it should cause those
tests to fail.

I don't know if it is possible to automatically (or even globally)
allow these tests to run without disabling the firewall. This would
need further investigation.
Also, could you add a note about the presence of a firewall to the
ConformanceTests wiki page.
