The Test Lab Guide: Deploy Windows Firewall with Advanced Security to Protect Network Communication to a Domain Controller ( is now available.

This new modular Test Lab Guide (TLG) from Senior Technical Writer Vic Horne contains an introduction to Windows Firewall with Advanced Security (WFAS) and step-by-step instructions for extending the Base Configuration test lab. You configure WFAS connection security rules to protect network communication between a domain controller and domain member computers using Internet Protocol security (IPsec).The connection security rules are configured to allow new computers to join the domain and then subsequently the communication between the domain controller and the domain member is protected using IPsec.

Thanks Vic!
