Windows firewall Predefined Inbound Rules Server 2016 vs 2019

Hello,

On my systems there seems to be a larger set of predefined inbound rules in server 2016 vs 2019 for File and Print sharing. Also those extra rules seem to be enabled by default. Is this some extra hardening on server 2019?

For some reason on my 2016 build I had the file and print sharing rules enabled for the domain profile. There were no rules just for the domain profile in 2019. I assume this was either set by the "Do you want your pc to be discoverable" prompt or some other service. Either way there is no list that defines what is enabled or or not by default.

Hi,

It seems no difference for predefined File and Print sharing inbound rules between server 2016 and 2019. As picture below:
