    Odd. That command should be setting the "File and Printer Sharing" rule in Windows Defender Firewall "Allowed apps" like below based on the specified network profile in the command.

    Ok, I found the correct command:

    Set-NetFirewallRule -DisplayGroup "File And Printer Sharing" -Enabled True -Profile Any

    Hmm, it should use "-Profile Any" by default when it isn't specified in the command.

    I've updated the tutorial to include that in the command to make it more specific.
