I'm trying to fix up my friend's remote Windows Server 2003 R2 machine.
I have Remote Desktop access at the moment. However, I notice that Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing service of the remote machine is disabled, which seems to be a bad idea. If I enable and start the service now, I may lose my Remote Desktop access in case the exception rule for Remode Desktop has not been defined in Windows Firewall.
So I need a way to inspect and modify exception rules even as the Windows Firewall/ICS service is stopped and disabled.
Does anybody know how?
