    How would I use GP to create a firewall exception rule to allow all ports
    from a specific IP (or range of IPs)

    1) for Allow remote administration exception" setting, this only allows
    certain ports like 139 etc. not all ports?

    2) I was thinking I would create a 'port exception' rule to allow any port
    and any protocol from a specific PC on the network. For example...
    *:*: rule
    Will that work?

    *** Try 'Define port exceptions' instead
    *** Set it, test and then you'll know :)

    Besides testing, any other feedback on this? I would like to do the same

    i tried a few settings and using the wildcard does nto seem to work

    I setup the following rules:
    2701:TCP:ip address:enabled:text
    3995:TCP:ip address:Enabled:text
    445:*.*:ip address:enabled:text

    When i went to my client test machine, it looks like the ones that got
    applied were the 2701 and 3995 settings.

    As I recall you can't wildcard TCP/UDP or Enabled/Disabled. You must specify
    one or the other

    Notes If you have any spaces between the entries in the list of sources or
    any other invalid characters, the scope is ignored and the setting behaves
    as if it were disabled. Please double-check your scope syntax before saving
