Cant get firewall to block traffic by IP

I'm trying to restrict port 445 traffic to only certain hosts. I created 2 rules in the firewall rules policy, one that allows port 445 from our allowed hosts and one that deny port 445 traffic. I applied the policy to our test computer but when I use the test-netconnection function on powershell for port 445 it successfully connects with every system I try. I defined the allowed IPs in the network section of the rule. Any insight would be appreciated.

Re: Cant get firewall to block traffic by IP

Hi @Tredmond7511 

Thankyou for reaching us on community!

Have you set up 2 different policy ? (1 policy to block 445 and the other policy to allow 445) ?
Do you have any location aware group created to this ?

I think it would be better to connect with Technical Support to proceed further as we will have to inspect over remote session to better understand the configuration.

I hope this helps.
