Windows Admin Center for managing servers and clients

Admin onthe Bridge

In Control of Windows Firewall

The Firewall item shows for which network profiles the firewall is active and what the default setting is for unknown incoming and outgoing traffic. The items Incoming Rules and Outgoing Rules let you view the respective stored firewall rules and, if necessary, adjust, delete, or deactivate them. It is also possible to activate firewall rules.

Two menu items, Processes and Services , let you monitor and control the processes and system services on the server, whereas Select columns lets you define in WAC which information appears when you manage processes.


WAC offers an effective way to manage different servers on the network. It is worthwhile at least to test the tool. WAC can also be used to manage older Windows servers and their functions in a web browser, so the free tool offers real added value.
