    Hi,

    Is it possible to interrogate the firewall?

    Can it be configured?

    Thanks.

  5. I quote Bruce Chambers--a regular contributor here:

    There are two interfaces for Vistas built-in firewall:

    1) A simplified one accessed through the Control Panel that is the only
    one most people see. To further supplement this view, Sphinx's Vista
    Firewall Control <http://sphinx-soft.com/Vista/>) is a piece of freeware
    that makes the Vista Firewall much more useful to the average user.

    2) And the more advanced "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security
    (WF.msc), accessed via the Start Menu's Administrative Tools folder, for
    the experienced user who wants more granular control

    Thanks for the two links via Control Panel.

    Now I must search for a tutorial on the meanings of the allowed an
    blocked.

    I noted that my printer seems to have many inward allowed optiions.
    think it would stop working if these were not allowed.

    Best wishes

  7. Engel posted excellent references. Are you trying to do things
    programmatically?
