I have a Windows 2008 R2 server with a custom inbound rule in the firewall.  Mainly a long list of nuisance connection IP addresses from outside the US.  

I'm moving the web clients to a 2016 server.  I'd like to copy that rule to the new server.  I see I can export the list of rules but I don't see a way to import it.  

Am I missing something?
