Hi, We can use the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security interface to configure rules for both inbound and outbound connections, which means Windows Server 2008 Advanced Firewall is a built-in bi-directional firewall. The new Windows Firewall supports firewalling for both incoming and outgoing traffic. For example, a network administrator can configure the new Windows Firewall with a set of exceptions to block all traffic sent to specific ports, such as the well-known ports used by virus software, or to specific addresses containing either sensitive or undesirable content. For more information about Windows Firewall, please refer to: Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Getting Started with Windows Firewall with Advanced Security in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 Windows Firewall Hope it helps.
