ERROR: The Windows Filtering Platform has blocked a packet

One of my servers has been getting numerous events logged saying “The Windows Filtering Platform has blocked a packet” with internal IP addresses usually listed.

 

I found that running these two commands quieted the logging:

auditpol /set /subcategory:”Filtering Platform Packet Drop” /success:disable /failure:disable

auditpol /set /subcategory:”Filtering Platform Connection” /success:disable /failure:disable

If you need any other commands, you can check out the full Microsoft article here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb736284(v=vs.85).aspx
