I am working on designing some group policy elements for our servers. Without getting into a debate about pros or cons of group policy, I was curious if the following could be performed.
I would like to know if there is a way to create a policy that will allow me to send a new firewall rule to the existing and local firewall rules on machines for the following two rules:
World Wide Web Services (HTTP Traffic-In) World Wide Web Services (HTTPS Traffic-In)
I would like to be able to control through policy what exceptions are allowed for those two. I have tried looking for it under
Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security -> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security -> Inbound Rules
and tried creating a new rule using the "Predefined" option, but it does not contain either of the two items listed above. This is for a Windows Server 2008 R2 server and I am using a Windows 7 machine to create and edit the policy with.
