Hello,

 

I was just looking at my Windows firewall settings and noticed that the "inbound settings that do not match a rule are blocked" option appears to be turned off for Domain, Private and Public profiles. When I look at the properties tab it says that inbound connections are set to "blocked (default)" 

 

So, should the "inbound settings that do..." have the green check-shield or is it showing the red not-on setting OK?

The red icon means that inbound settings that do not match a rule are being blocked. So yes, that is what is should be showing.
