How do I configure the FIREWALL on the windows SERVER CORE?

To configure the FIREWALL on the windows SERVER CORE:

Use the following command.

netsh advfirewall

For example, to enable remote management from any MMC snap-in, type the following:

netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="Remote Administration" new enable=yes

Notes: You can also use the Windows Firewall snap-in from a computer running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 to remotely manage the firewall on a server running a Server Core installation. To do this, you must first enable remote management of the firewall by running the following command on the computer running a Server Core installation:

netsh advfirewall set currentprofile settings remotemanagement enable
