How to allow something in the firewall with policies?


Recommended Posts

Stupid question but i just can't get any policies to work that tries to allow connections.

I have tried making Miracast work by allowing port 7236.

Tried making Powershell Remoting work by allowing port 5985 etc.

 

I do set the port on both Local/Remote, and i tried using with and without ip ranges.

Could someone provide an example perhaps, i am most likely missing something very obvious.

 

Thanks!

I guess that might be the issue as the one port should be static, but the second one is usually generated randomly so make sure you put the port number to the correct destination i.e. local / remote.

Or if the Miracast has an static IP you may allow all traffic from it...

Having some difficulties still, but i think the main issue was that the policies seemed to overwrite the firewall rules by default or something?
Couldn't quite figure it out, but if i had multiple policies, it would mess things up, if i had one, it seems to work.

I don't quite get the part where you allow something in the firewall, but it can still be blocked via the IDS,
is that supposed to happen?
