Windows Vista Firewall
« on: January 18, 2007, 02:46:23 AM »
Just wanted to let everyone know a little bit about Vista's new Firewall.


Do not be deceived by the Firewall in Windows Vista.

 It is a fully configurable firewall with plenty of power. And highly configurable once you enter it's Enhanced Interface.

 Note: The firewall in Vista is set by default, half disabled.
You should learn about Vista's firewall, and set it up to fill your own needs.

Here is a link that should help you learn and configure Vista's Firewall to receive the best protection for your system.
