I want to enable iSCSI service tcp-in for all networks on the firewall. I would like to do this through Group Policy. I have tried adding this already and created a rule but it will not apply. I have tested just turning the firewall off and it works fine, but I would prefer not to do that for just one thing. I know I do this in Computer Config\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings and then Firewall. When I applied and checked with gpresult /r on the PC I am testing on it says "denied access".

Any assistance is appreciated. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
