Hello Experts,

I want to block all ports in my winXP machine except for those in my LAN, how do I do that?

here is the policy I would like to set:

1. only traffic within my LAN
2. no internet packets allowed (not using this machine as a router)
3. I am RDPing to this computer via my own LAN... that's the only traffic allowed....

thanks experts....

Block all ports except for 3389, that should allow only RDP to come in.

Turn the firewall on and then add an exception for port 3389 and set the scope of the port to "my network only"

thank you experts,

I get a message saying that the port is being used for my RDP...

Under scope, I specified the only IP address allowed...

if I block all these ports, do I still need virus protection?

thanks,

If you aren't sharing any data through the RDP session (clipboard, drives, etc) than there shouldn't be any virus issues.  How will data be getting on that machine?
