Monitoring Windows Firewall with Advanced Security

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Monitoring Windows Firewall with Advanced Security

Use this folder to monitor both firewall rules and connection security rules created using the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security snap-in. Policies created using the IP Security Policy snap-in cannot be viewed using this folder.

The Monitoring Overview page shows which profile is active (either domain, private, or public) and the settings for that profile.

Firewall

Use this folder to monitor all of the enabled firewall rules, including firewall rules for the active profile and firewall rules distributed by using Group Policy objects (GPOs). Only active (applied) firewall rules are monitored.

Connection security rules

This folder lists all of the enabled connection security rules with detailed information about their settings. Connection security rules use Internet Protocol security (IPsec) to secure communication between this computer and other computers. Connection security rules define which authentication, key exchange, data integrity, or encryption can be used to form a security association (SA). An SA defines the security used to protect the communication from sender to receiver.

Security associations

This folder lists all of the Main Mode and Quick Mode SAs with detailed information about their settings and endpoints.

Main Mode

This folder lists all of the Main Mode SAs with detailed information about their settings and endpoints. You can use this folder to view the IP addresses of the endpoints.

Quick Mode

This folder lists all of the Quick Mode SAs with detailed information about their settings and endpoints. You can use this folder to view the IP addresses of the endpoints.
