Block Ports with Windows Firewall on Win 10

Good Morning,

So I've been tasking with closing certain ports on some computers at the moment I am playing with a Test Computer via Windows Firewall implementing locally and via GPO

So for example I want to try and block port 445 for example by default and then only allow certain IP addresses to connect to that port.

I know I can block the port via Windows Firewall and run Netstat -NA to see if the port is listening

If it also possible to telnet to open port to test is they are open? If so how would I know if it was connected or blocked.

If there a way to turn on Windows Firewall Logging on a local computer without going via GPO

Thank in advance
