I'm attempting to block an IP adress with

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="BLOCKED IP" interface=any dir=in action=block remoteip=<ip_address>

But then I can ping the IP address and connect to it in my browser just fine.

  • That really shouldn't be necessary – Le Frite Nov 26 at 15:25
  • I agree, but It's windows we're talking about. Always try to reboot...Actually, turn it off and then on again. – Ricardo S. Nov 26 at 15:27
