View Full Version : Windows XP's firewall

03-10-2005, 12:46 PM
I have Windows XP's firewall disabled in the control panel. If you then click on the Advanced tab in the Windows Firewall settings screen it lists all the network connections for your computer. If any of these connections are checked, is the Windows firewall enabled for these connections (overriding the OFF setting in the General tab) or is the Windows firewall disabled for good despite these connections being checked?

If it is set to off on the first screen then it is off no matter what networks are ticked on the advanced tab.

Hope you're using a replacement for MS's effort at a firewall?
