I am looking at a good software firewall solution that will allow me to block certain IP addresses from all ports.
The problem is that, the only way I have access to the server is via remote desktop. I found when you install almost all software firewall solutions, that it requires a restart. The problem here is that after the restart I probably wont have access to the server via remote desktop because it will be blocked by default by the new software firewall.
What is the solution? How do I install a firewall solution but have access to the machine via remote desktop by default?
