Yes.

You should not enable Internet Connection Firewall on virtual private
networking (VPN) connections, which are typically used to securely log in
to a corporate network. You should not enable ICF on client computers that
are part of a large company or school network with a server-client
structure. ICF will interfere with file and printer sharing in these
scenarios.

This is detailed in the following article:
