Turn off Firewall for Windows Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2014-01-29
I installed Windows Server 2008 R2 onto a Windows Small Business Server 2011 domain. I want to turn off the firewall but I don't have that option. When I choose to turn the firewall off, I am allows to turn it off for home or network or public, but not for the domain. How do I turn it off for the domain so that the firewall is not on at all.
I disabled the firewall policy on the Domain controller, but it did not have any effect to the domain controller or the server I am working on. For this entire network (servers and workstations) I don't want any firewall on at all.
Please let me know how I can turn off the domain firewall on my Windows 2008 R2 server.
