Product Help

Updated: June 15, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

Installed Help is available when you open any of the following Microsoft Management Consoles (MMCs), and then press F1: Windows Firewall with Advanced Security, IP Security Policies, and IP Security Monitor. The installed Help provides information about how to use and configure Windows Firewall with Advanced Security and IPsec.

  • Windows Firewall with Advanced Security (for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008)

    Windows Firewall with Advanced Security (for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2)

    The Authfw.chm file is installed with Windows. It is displayed when you open the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security MMC snap-in and press F1.

  • Creating and Using IPsec Policies

    The Ipsecpolicy.chm file is installed with Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2. It is displayed when you open the IP Security Policies MMC snap-in and press F1.

    noteNote
    The IP Security Policies snap-in is designed for use with earlier versions of Windows and is provided for backward compatibility. Although it can be used to create IPsec policies that can be applied to computers running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2, this snap-in does not support the new security algorithms and other new features available in those newer versions of Windows. To create IPsec polices that use these new algorithms and features, use the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security snap-in.

  • Monitoring IPsec

    The Ipsecmonitor.chm file is installed with Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2. It is displayed when you open the IP Security Monitor MMC snap-in and press F1.

    noteNote
    The IP Security Monitor snap-in is designed for use with IPsec policies created by the IP Security Policy Management MMC snap-in. It is designed for earlier versions of Windows and is provided for backward compatibility. This snap-in does not support the new security algorithms and other new features available in Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2. To monitor IPsec when using these new algorithms, use the Monitoring node in the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security snap-in.
