192.168.0.0/20

Enter the line:

192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0,192.168.16.0/255.255.255.0

under custom list

if you mean all ranges 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.254 and 192.168.16.1 - 192.168.16.264.


Don't forget the comma (,) that seprates the two ranges.

At a command line or in a script use:
     netsh firewall set service RemoteAdmin enable subnet
     netsh firewall set service RemoteDesktop enable subnet
or
          netsh firewall set service RemoteDesktop enable custom 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0,192.168.16.0/255.255.255.0

Hi Sid_F,

I was wondering could you tell me what prompted you do choose M0b1us answer over the answer I gave.

I would like to know so that I can give better answers in the future.

Also, I think that the scope given by M0b1us will not allow 192.168.16.X because I think the second scope option accidentally has the 16 and 0 reversed (192.168.0.16 instead of 192.168.16.0).

Please be assured I am not trying to steal points away or anything, I am just trying to learn from any mistakes I may have made or anyway that helps me clarify answers better

Tks,

Brad D.
