My goal is to restrict all HTTP inbound requests to a specific IP addresses. I thought it would be a simple process - but I am not getting the result desired
I have modified a predefined rule called WWW (HTTP Traffic-In) - so that it "Block" incoming connection (and made sure the this inbound rule's Scope applies to the currently active Profile)
I did not at this stage - specify allowable IPs - as I want to see if the rule would block ALL http traffic inbound.
In the Private Profile (which is the active profile) - i have these settings: - Firewall state: On - Inbound connections: Allow - Outbound connections: Block
Windows Firewall Overview Page shows: - Private Profile is Active - Inbound connections that do not match a rule are allowed - Outbound connections that do not match a rule are blocked
However, the firewall rule still allowed HTTP traffic inward and my Windows 2008 server still responded with a test page
I know it should be a simple task setting up a firewall rule - but perhaps I missing something ??
