I'm having an issue where the firewall is doing what it wants. regardless of how I set it up. Here's my situation.
I have Server 2008 Standard , No Active Directory no Domain, just a workgroup (AD or Domain model is not even considerable in this situation, my hands are tied)
It has 2 NICS
NIC1 Has two static IP Addresses
10.0.0.99 and 10.1.0.99 both 255.255.255.0 subnet.
NIC1 is labeled "Unidentified Network" and is using the "Private" profile
NIC1 is attached to a private switch containing a few medical devices, a IP Web cam, and 2 small computers, and no external connections.
NIC2 is plugged into the "Site" network, and is simply using DHCP
NIC2 is Labeled by the parent network's domain name using the "Piublic" profile
NIC2 is plugged into a completely seperate network, they can not see one another.
I have created a rule to block outbound remote port 80, and enabled that rulle for Domain, and Public profiles.
I have created an allow remote port 80 rule , and enabled that one on the "private" network.
Regardless of all settings the block 80 outbound rule takes presidence over the allow, despite them being enabled on different profiles. I can't access port 80 on any network despite applying the rules to specific profiles and configuring the NICs to use the same. My goal is that the operator of the server has to be able to access port 80 on the 10.x.x.x network but not on the public side. It appears to me that Server 2008 completely ignores the profiles of each network, am I missing something ?
Please keep in mind when answering. I didn't choose a server class OS to act as a workstation, I can not create or enable a domain or AD. I'm just some poor enginner stuck with someone else's bad design.
