Disable firewall in Windows Server Core (R1 or R2)

6. May 2010

Note this also works for Hyper-V Server R1 or R2

 A quick and easy method to disable the Windows Firewall in server core is to use the following command

“netsh advfirewall set currentprofile state off”

I have had to do this in some situations to get the DPM (2007 or 2010) agent to install remotely for example.

2. May 2010

Login to the server with administrative credentials

clicking Start > Run , typing ncpa.cpl and press Enter

Press Alt+N to display the Advanced menu

Select Advanced Settings. On the Adapters and Bindings tab, highlight your NIC and use the arrows on the right hand side to adjust it’s binding order.

 

Simple as that but not always obvious.
