Open the Server Manager from the taskbar. On the right-hand side of the top navigation bar, click on ‘Tools’ and select Windows Firewall with Advanced Security. Select either of the Inbound Rules under Windows Firewall with Advanced Security on the left side of the management console. From the right side of the Inbound Rules tab click on ‘New Rule’.
