    There is nothing to allow or not allow in XP firewall.
    You just enable it and XP will "do the rest" !!

    I don't think that it's enough on it's own, you really should get another one to work in conjunction with the XP firewall.

    Lol im sorry but yer outta luck.

    Go to Control Panel
    Network Connections
    Right-click the NW conn you using
    Go to Properties
    Go to Advanced
    Check the box for Protect the comp with firewall
    And see the Settings box come to life. In there you config what the fw allow and not.
    it is THOSE settings I wanna know the ultimate configuration for.

    your best bet is to just turn it on and leave it the way it is.I have tested it on the Symantec website and it seems to work pretty good.It blocks stuff from getting in but not from getting out.that is the downfall to it.

    Yeah sorry I never saw that before.

    But I would think that most of those things are needed.

    True... but I just want to know exactly what of the listed are needed to allow, and which to not. And if there are anything they missed out, the rules I need to create to patch that one up.
    Anyone with knowledge?

    its a poor firewall, turn it off and get zonealarm, its the easiest to configure.
    I know its not what you want but they have a free one, and a trail of the better one, with the newest one(4) you can import the bad ip list from pear guardian

    TrueNeo,

    A Google search ("XP Firewall+ settings") resulted in many hits, but almost all of them simply instruct you how to enable the firewall- they are very light on info as to exact settings.

    I think that this reflects the fact that the default XP firewall is not taken very seriously by most people, so it is seen as a nOOb fallback.

    It looks like you're on your own here. Enable things one at a time and see what happens...

    Ach, phuck the damn XP firewall then lol.

    Since Sygate has conspired against me thus blocking me file transfers, Im gonna try ZoneAlarm. Norton in general I dislike, so lemme try ZoneAlarm.

    TY all for trying, especially muchspl2, clocker and zapjb for convincing me lol.
