Fix Recommendation

Ensure firewall exceptions to inbound connections on domain workstations only allow authorized management systems and remote management hosts.

Firewall rules can be complex and should be thoroughly tested before applying in a production environment.

One method for restricting inbound connections is to only allow exceptions for a specific scope of remote IP addresses. For any inbound rules that allow connections from other systems, configure the Scope for Remote IP addresses to those of authorized management systems and remote management hosts. This may be defined as an IP address, subnet, or range. Apply the rule to all firewall profiles.
