If the built-in ICF is enabled in XP, which settings should I enable in order to allow my network of 3 computers (all XPs) to work properly?

When I click Advace Settings, there are a lists of things like services, Security Logging and ICMP, I am really confused as what to enable?

Help, please.


Cheers

Have you done a search with Google? The sites that I have just looked at have reinforced my view that using a firewall like Kerio is a much better option.

Have a look at these two for a start:
Windows XP Internet Connection Firewall (http://www.tipsdr.com/windows-xp-firewalls.html)

Windows XP Firewalls (http://www.tipsdr.com/windows-xp-firewalls.html).

Typing windows xp icf into Google will get you more results also.

One more point: Windows XP firewall will not prevent traffic going out from your computer, only incoming traffic.
