>>Click on start run and enter WF.msc.  Click on Inbound Rules.  Then Right-Click on Inbound Rules and choose refresh.  Then scroll through the Inbound Rules in the center pane and look for the name of the rule you created.  If it is enabled it will have a Check mark in a green circle next to it.  If it is disabled it the circle with the check mark in it will be greyed out.  



I blocked an ip address from connecting to a port
I created a rule
and it is enabled  (red circle)

but i can see in curports.exe that ip address is still connected to a port in state 'time wait'

Block a port don't disable the service/program/process to listen to the port and wait for connexion.

Sometime you block a port for a range of IP, in this case for valid IP your service/program/process should be able to answer.
Before let the traffic passed to the service/program/process the firewall check all rules/exceptions

blocked ip addresses are in state 'time wait'

could they get into state, 'close wait' 'listening' 'established'


what can someone see when in 'time wait'

Replace "blocked port" from the following : Telnet 127.0.0.1 blocked port
Open a new command dos/prompt to check state

>what can someone see when in 'time wait'
From external nothing (depend your exception/rule)

Just use the way you check as usual

to open command dos :

http://www.windowsvistauserguide.com/vista_dos_commands.htm

to install telnet (vista, seven, 2008), open command dos and type : pkgmgr /iu:TelnetClient
but I remeber you already ask how to install telnet client ;-)
