I have a group policy which contains 4 inbound rules for Windows firewall.  

- The workstations are in the correct OU,
-The firewall is not disabled on the workstations in question
-There are no GP that is overriding the GP with the inbound rules

on a workstation I forced the policy and I checked the inbound rules, I see the rule listed but not enabled. Where in the GP I have it enabled

I need the inbound rules to be enabled how do i get this to work?

Which Firewall Profile is the rule set to use? Domain, Private, or Public? If the rule isn't set to use the Domain Profile, it will always be disabled when connected to the same LAN as the DC (and joined to the network). The three profiles are used to determine which rules apply based on what kind of network the computer is connected to. If you want your rule to always apply, make sure it is enabled for all three.

i found the problem. Firewall was disabled on the DC. Once I started up the firewall and refreshed I saw the inbound rules within the firewall GP.
