Is it possible to view Windows firewall settings in command line?
Also, how would I be able to check advanced windows firewall settings in GUI?
To view the Windows Firewall settings in command-line, type:
This will open a menu with different settings, including advanced settings (like setting rules).
There's usually a shortcut somewhere in Admin/System Tools folder of your Start Menu that will access Windows Firewall with Advanced Security GUI. Or just type "wf.msc" at an administrative command prompt. The "netsh advfirewall" (or "netsh firewall" in Win XP) command will let you view/work with firewall settings at the command line.
