I was wondering if there is a way to allow an IP address through my Windows server 2003R2 Firewall without using the exceptions tab. Problem is I have a client system that runs a third party software that connects to this server. Each time
it connects it uses a different port so I am unable to specify just one or so ports in the exceptions. What I would like to do is just allow the IP address through so I can have my firewall up and not have the computer access blocked. Can I use
netsh in the CMD line to edit the firewall settings to do this?Ryan Blackerby
If I remember correctly for Windows 2003 firewall does not provide you a way to Exempt an IPAddress. If you dont know what port would a client be connecting to you, you should make a exception based on program. So whatever program/service on server communicates
with your client, you can create an exemption/exception for that program in firewall.
And yes it can be done by from command line use 'netsh firewall add allowedprogram' context.
