    Hi

    I am running Windows 8.1 virtual machine that has 2 NICs, does anyone know if I can configure the OS to block all ports except RDP on one nic (then block RDP on the other)?

    yes, I can certainly block/allow in there, but I did not see options to specify the individual NICs.

    What is it you are trying to do with a setup like that? Maybe there is a better way to do it.

    this got some good stuff too http://www.ohmancorp.com/refwin-advfirewall.asp

    Essentially I don't think you can do it - but you can nearly do it if you have one set as "work network" and one as "public network" but I don't think the control is granular enough for what you want.

    Sorry if I havn't read the post right, but can't you just set static IP addresses on each Nic and block/allow the relevant ports on the router?

    I had seen that, it appeared to be a fudge and I had hoped to avoid it.

    Not a bad idea, it is on virtualbox so I will see if the setting allow it, cheers!
