Hi, everyone:

Does anyone know of a way to get Windows Firewall to allow access on all
ports to a specified IP address or subnet? I ask because I can allow specific
ports, but wildcards like "*" don't seem to work.

Ideally, this would be done through group policy, but any means necessary
would be a good start.

Any thoughts out there?

The ipsec bypass feature can be used for this purpose. It relies on the
authentication of the other peer using ipsec, then consults the Active
Directory against a group policy defined set of allowed computers which can
access all ports. This is really only going to be available in a corporate
environment.
