In addition to all of the features that enable you to create firewall and connection security rules, Windows Firewall with Advanced Security includes built-in tools for monitoring the firewall and the IPsec connections you make to other computers. The monitoring node does not allow you to create any new firewall or IPsec nodes, but allows you to see which settings and rules are in affect on the computer.

Use this folder to monitor details for all currently active and applied inbound and outbound firewall rules.

Use this folder to monitor the following:

  • 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.
