Windows Firewall

Windows Firewall is a stateful firewall that comes installed with most modern versions of Windows by default. On Windows 2008 Server machines, the firewall is enabled by default, blocking many of the ports that cause so much trouble in otherwise unprotected Windows systems. On virtual servers, the Windows Firewall ensures that only the services necessary for the chosen function are exposed (the firewall will automatically configure itself for new server roles, for instance, and when certain server applications are installed). As members of your domain, the Windows Firewall of your virtual servers can be managed remotely, or through Group Policy.
