Allowing a port through the Windows firewall

Windows - Windows Firewall with Advanced Security



This assumes you have working knowledge of how to use Remote Desktop Protocol and your login is a member of the Administrators group on the server.


1) RDP into the server using proper credentials.

2) Click Start and navigate to Administrative Tools->Windows Firewall with Advanced Security



3) Enable, disable, or edit one of the predefined rules already created.



4) Create a new rule if needed.



5) All rules are active once enabled.  There is no need to restart services or reboot for these rules to have effect.  Please take note when doing so, as editing a rule incorrectly may lock out your connection.
