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 http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/library/ff06e8d5-b029-4c4a-8e13-2f27d721087b1033.mspx?mfr=true Getting Started with Windows Firewall with Advanced Security in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsVista/en/library/19b429b3-c32b-4cbd-ae2a-8e77f2ced35c1033.mspx?mfr=true Windows Firewall http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/network/bb545423.aspx Hope it helps.
