Enabling Firewall rules on Windows Server 2008 Server Core for remote management

Here are some common rules you might want to enable on your Core Server for remote management.

To enable all the rules for remote administration use this command:
Netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group=“remote administration” new enable=yes

To enable specific commands follow this format:
Netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group=“” new enable=yes

For example:
MMC Snap-in – Event Viewer
Windows Firewall Rule Group – Remote Event Log Management
Netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group=“Remote Event Log Management” new enable=yes

MMC Snap-in – Disk Management
Windows Firewall Rule Group – Remote Volume Management
Netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group=“Remote Volume Management” new enable=yes

MMC Snap-in – Windows Firewall with Advanced Security
Windows Firewall Rule Group – Windows Firewall Remote Management
Netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group=“Windows Firewall Remote Management” new enable=yes

I’m not going to rewrite here all the commands. Here’s the link to David Daivs’s article about how to configure Windows Server 2008 Advanced Firewall. Enjoy!
