Firewall Configuration

Updated: January 9, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Windows Firewall with Advanced Security supports several configuration settings that control how and when firewall and Internet Protocol security (IPsec) rules are applied. For example, changing the network location type, turning the firewall on or off, or resetting the firewall to its initial out-of-box configuration can affect which rules are applied to network traffic.

When appropriate auditing events are enabled (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=92666), Windows reports when critical configuration changes occur that can affect the firewall and IPsec processing.
