Problem in setting up firewalls

Asked By 220 points N/A Posted on -

How do you configure the windows firewall especially using group policies?

As far as I know it is the quickest method.

A firewall is a device or set of devices designed to permit or deny network transmissions based upon a set of rules and is frequently used to protect networks from unauthorized access while permitting legitimate communications to pass.

But it does not serve the above definition.

Please help!

Problem in setting up firewalls


Using group policies to setup windows firewall is very convenience provided that Active Directory Domain is required.  Domain policy of Windows firewall  is required to change and this domain policy is executed in computers when the domain are connected to PC.  It takes about several hours to become effective on PC after the policy is implemented.

Enable the ‘Windows Firewall ; Allow Remote Administration Exception’.  You could enable the above at one of your Lansweeper server, just its IP address, or all machines.  You can use the command of ‘netsh firewall show state’ to test if the policy is relevant to the your workstation.  Try this C:>netsh firewall / show state.

The status of Firewall shall be set as follows.

Group policy version = Windows Firewall
Remote admin mode = Enable
Profile = Domain
Multicast/broadcast response mode = Enable
Exception mode = Enable
Notification mode = Enable
Operational mode = Enable

Hope this could helps.

It has been set as default that local administrators are not able to change some configuration settings when they are using Control Panel (Windows Firewall) and trying to configure Windows Firewall using Group Policies.

To deploy Windows Firewall, follow these steps:
1. Try to update objects in Group Policies with the new settings in Windows Firewall.
2. Specify the settings of Windows Firewall for the Group Policy objects.

For details for each of these steps (the two steps mentioned above), see this link.
