Hi,

I have a Server running Windows 2010. It is accessible through Remote Desktop and Plesk.

I'm getting a lot of brute force attacks on the MSSQL server. Going through the forums, we found that I can create inbound rule on the firewall to block the IP's.
When blocking the IP's, accidentally "Any IP Address" option was clicked.
This blocked all the access to the remote desktop, and all our websites on the server became unavailable.

How do I delete the rule so that we can restart the firewall?

First...why are you exposing your SQL server to the internet?? You mentioned you had access to RDP, remote into the system as admin, bring up the firewall mmc snap-in and make your changes....

Looks like Windows Firewall does not understand order, permit is always higher than allow. I've done, sort of what you want, by setting the scope to block for 0.0.0.0-192.168.0.0 and then from 192.168.0.2-255.255.255.254

I think it's working as intended
