Windows firewall Authorized computers in inbound rule is not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI,

    I have to allow access to a SMB file share to specific client machines only. for this I have done below steps, but still it is not working. remote authorized computer is not allowed to access file share and gets a message can not find \\server\share

    1. on server machine inbound rule for "File and Printer sharing (SMB-in) " set to block all connections

    2. on server created new inbound rule to allow all programs, all ports for TCP with "allow connection if it is authenticated and integrity protected" and set override block rules. and provided remote computer name in authorized computer list

    somehow override is not working and even from authorized computer I am not able to access File Share. Is there an option to check details in firewall log, why override rule is not working (or not enforcing authorized computer to access)
