Need some help getting the firewall configed for an admin workstation.  Have the guides, but it's not helping much for what I need.  Here is the scenario.  I am a domain admin and I basically want to allow everything I initiate from my workstation, but want to be in stealth mode.  I don't want anyone to be able to know my device is even on the network.  I think I'm close to that, but I am unable to access network resources like files shares.  I can get to the Internet, RDP, VMware client, Exchange, Lync and Citrix apps.  What I cannot do is open up ADUC, Remote to other devices via mmc snap-ins, or browse file servers.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

don't allow incoming traffic i.e. block all from the local network.

yeah I've got that part...I'm thinking rpc outbound is blocked or something.  why would I not be able to use mmc to connect to remote machines or browse file shares?

if outbound not block ...then consider protocol and ports u didnt include them and block by default...eg. netbios , icmp , cifs ,ftp ...etc.
