Disable Windows Server 2012 Firewall

    In a previous post, I explained how to disable the Windows 7 firewall and leave it to Microsoft to change how an operation is performed.

    Like the previous post, there are times when I don't want the firewall in the way of troubleshooting a problem.  The following is how to disable it.

    From a Command Prompt run as the administrator, enter the following:

    Set-NetFirewallProfile -Profile Domain,Public,Private -Enabled False

    Changing the trailing False to True will enable it.
