Enabled Firewall on VM and cannot access VM now

Jump to solution

I am kicking myself for this, but I enabled Windows Firewall on my VM, and now I can no longer remotely access the VM. I should have known better, but without being able to access the VM, how can I now disable Windows Firewall?

From the console of the VM?

Yes, that was the solution. I should have added more context to my issue, but when I selected the web console it was giving me a disconnected message. After downloading the VM Remote Console I was able to access and correct my mistake. Thank you for the reply.
