Restrict Access to Server 2008 R2 by IP Address

I have a new installation of Server 2008 r2 and I'm trying to figure out the firewall.

I thought I'd start simple... restricting access by IP address of the computer trying to connect to it.

But I don't see how to do that.  The list of pre-existing inbound and outbound rules is pretty daunting.

I'd like to turn them all off and just start with one simple rule, restricting access by IP address of source.

Anybody know how to do that?

Thanks.

IPSec is how I would do it
 Although you can do this through the firewall.

If you want to do this through the firewall, go to
Control Panel
Firewall
Change settings
Select 'add program' or 'Add Port'
Change scope

the examples tell the formatting.
