Server 2008 Client - Block external traffic while keeping network connectivity
Posted on 2014-04-01
So Win XP support is ending, before it does I need an XP client to still have network connectivity locally, but have all traffic denied to it from the outside world. The client machine runs control software to a big UV printer which is unavailable on Windows 7, hence no choice keeping XP. I need to lock it down to prevent it being a gateway to all the nasty outsiders, while retaining local folder sharing user access.
I'm presuming I need to use the Firewall to prevent access over certain ports to the client IP address, anybody shed any light onto this?
