The Windows Firewall: Allow local port exceptions setting allows administrators to use the Windows Firewall component in Control Panel to define a local port exceptions list. Windows Firewall can use two port exceptions lists; the other is defined by the Windows Firewall: Define port exceptions policy setting. If you enable this policy setting, the Windows Firewall component in Control Panel allows administrators to define a local port exceptions list. If you disable this policy setting, the Windows Firewall component in Control Panel does not allow administrators to define such a list. Typically, local administrators are not authorized to override organizational policy and establish their own port exceptions list in enterprise or high security environments. For that reason, this appendix recommends configuring this option as Disabled.
