Your window server has a Windows firewall which safeguards your system from malicious attacks. The firewall identifies if anything attempts to access your server and compares it with a set of rules. If it isn’t according to the rules or breaks the rule, your firewall doesn’t let the traffic through.
Your firewall can also block certain IP addresses from connecting to your server. On a Windows server, you do this by logging into your server via RDP and creating a new firewall rule listing the IP addresses you want to block.
In case you also want to block a specific IP in Windows Firewall, you will need to follow the below steps in order to achieve the best results.
On the Protocol and Ports screen, choose the Any option and select the Next option to move further.
Users will now have to add the special IP on the provided box of This IP address. As illustrated below in Figure 1.7
If required, users can also add more IPs by clicking the Add option. Once completed, click on the Next button to move further in the process.
On the Action window, the user will have to select the Block the Connection option. Once selected, choose the Next option to proceed further.
After clicking on the Next option, you will get the new window of Profile with three options. You will have to choose three options: Domain, Private, Public.
On the Name window, set a name for the rule and choose the finish option.
After following the steps, you will be able to successfully block an IP in Windows Firewall.
