How to block firewall ports in Windows

The process itself is simple, and should not take long to complete:

  • Tap on the Windows-key, type Windows Firewall, and select Windows Firewall with Advanced Security from the results.
  • Click on Inbound Rules when the firewall window opens.
  • Select New Rule from the Actions pane.
  • Select Port from the Rule Type listing.
  • Select TCP or UDP, and specify the ports, or a port range (e.g. 445, or 137-139).
  • Select block the connection.
  • Select when the rule applies (leave default if unsure).

Add a name, e.g. Port 445, and a description, (e.g. reason for blocking, and date/time).
