Windows Server 2012 R2
For the past week, I've had to block many IP addresses because of attempted hacks. But when I'm using the Windows firewall, it's only slowing down the hack (not stopping it). I need them to be completed blocked. I'm using a Windows Server 2012 R2 firewall. Thanks.

    Use an external firewall. A software firewall should be used for control within a network. For attempted accesses from outside the network, use a network firewall. Stop access at the point of entry.

    If that can't be done, then the Windows Firewall (or some 3rd-party alternative that will have similar impact) is the final stopping point.
