Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To change the file size of the ICF security log

  1. Open Network Connections.

  2. Right-click the connection on which Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) has been enabled, and then click Properties.

  3. On the Advanced tab, click Settings.

  4. On the Security Logging tab, under Log file options, in Size limit, use the arrow buttons to adjust the size limit.

Caution

  • If the maximum allowable size for pfirewall.log is exceeded, the information that pfirewall.log contains is saved as pfirewall.log.old, and new information is saved as pfirewall.log. If the maximum allowable size for pfirewall.log is exceeded again, the information that pfirewall.log contains is saved as pfirewall.log.old, and the information that had been in pfirewall.log.old is overwritten. New information is always saved in pfirewall.log.

Notes

  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure.

  • To open Network Connections, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network Connections.

  • If ICF is enabled on two or more connections on a single computer, the ICF settings are global. If you select a setting or change a setting in Logging Options or Services on any one of the connections on which ICF is enabled, that setting is applied to all of the ICF firewalls on that computer.

  • The default size limit of the ICF security log is 4,096 kilobytes.

  • You must enable ICF before you can adjust the size limit of the ICF security log.

  • Internet Connection Firewall is included only in the original releases of Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition, and Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition.

  • This topic applies only to product features available in the original release of Windows Server 2003.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
