We've installed a local firewall on our machines (McAfee Firewall). I've created a rule to Deny All unsolicited Inbound TCP traffic into the machine. How can I test to see if this is working? I'm not to familiar with any tools to do so.

I do have test machines in place with the policy. My questions was more or less how I can test to see if unsolicited inbound traffic is being blocked. Any tools I can run from my machine, targeting a machine that has the policy and seeing the results showing blocked.
