    Win XP Firewall (Windows XP)

    Hi Everyone: I keep getting told that Win XP has a built in firewall and I don't know where to go to disable it. Does anyone know?

    I have looked in Device Manager and I don't know where else to look.

    Thanks,

    Re: Win XP Firewall (Windows XP)

    From this month's issue of PC Magazine:

    Microsoft added a firewall to Windows XP called Internet Connection Firewall (ICF). To enable it, go to Control Panel | Network Connections and right-click on a connection name. Select Properties, then click on the Advanced tab for each of your connections, and enable Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet. Unfortunately, ICF doesn't provide nearly as much protection as tools like Symantec's Norton Internet Security. ICF examines only inbound network traffic; it can't control programs on your system that are sending information out to the Internet.
