TCP Reset on a single port, stealth for others

Hello

On windows server 2008, the firewall by default is in stealth mode, which is a good thing. But I would like in top to specifically block a single port and on that port only return a TCP Reset when a connection is attempted, instead of playing dead. The reason is that I would like to reduce the lag due to a process waiting for a time out when trying to reach this port.

Is there any way to do this? Looking at the firewall settings, it doesn't seem to offer me any other behavior than just "block" or "allow". Not "reject/reset".

Thanks
Charles
