Change Windows Server 2012 network profile to Private

As default, Windows Server (R2) 2012 set its network profile to Public. Not as in Windows Server 2008 in which we can change profile via GUI, in Server 2012, we can change via Windows PowerShell (It seems that MS is forcing us to go back to command line OS)

1. Open Windows PowerShell
2. Run Set-NetConnectionProfile -NetworkCategory Private
3. Check if the profile has changed by running Get-NetConnectionProfile
