This Test Lab Guide contains an introduction to Windows Firewall with Advanced Security (WFAS) and step-by-step instructions for extending the Base Configuration test lab. You will learn to 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.
