Windows Server 2008 R2 Web Advanced Firewall

Posted on 2011-04-23
Last Modified: 2012-08-14

I've have a Windows 2008 Server R2 Web. I I need to add around ~50 CIDR blocks (to allow RDP, FTP etc.) for each service. It would take me some hours if I do it manually by pressing add new IP on advanced firewall.

 Is there any way to batch update the servive's allow list via PowerShell? (for example FTP or RDP)

    You mentioned using PowerShell but you can do it via the netsh command. It can be used to make changes to  Windows firewall. See this article (#7):
