I can not understand how to order the windows firewall rules.

I have a "allow" inbound rule to a specific program and TCP port to all the network.

Than I want to block just one ip address to the same program, I tried to add a "deny" rule to every program, every network and only for that ip but this is ovverride by the previous rule, how can I order rules?

Check this one out. There's no order of rules, but there's priority in which different types are processed. technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/…. Hope that helps –  Ashtray Feb 20 '14 at 9:40
