create a firewall rule in windows 2008

1
17

its a common issue with windows 2008 where if builtin firewall is enabled, it ll block almost all programs and ports which is not added to the exceptions list

Issue with exceptions is we should be well aware of the program architecture and ports used and need to add exceptions for each and every one

If we are running a service like sql or my sql first we need to find out ports and executable files to manage exceptions

But apart from this there is a much easy management tool available

For this go to start>>contol panel>>administrative/tools >>windows firewall

Now deside which kind of exceptions you need to add ie. Inbound or outbond

Right click on desired icon left and add new role

Now select program/servie etc

N
Press next

Select program and allow on next scree
