Review the following known issues before you use the Windows Firewall log file.
Logging is available only on connections for which Windows Firewall is turned on. This applies if you configure per-connection settings because no information is written to the log file for connections that are not protected with Windows Firewall.
Outgoing traffic that successfully reaches its destination is not logged. In addition, outbound traffic that is not blocked is not logged.
The default size of the Windows Firewall log file is 4,096 kilobytes (KB); the maximum size is 32,767 KB.
When the Windows Firewall log reaches the size that you set in Size limit (KB), the log file is renamed and a new log file is created.
