    Hi.
    To configure your firewall settings, follow these steps:
    >>Click Start, click Run, type wscui.cpl and then click OK.
    >>In Windows Security Center, click Windows Firewall.

    Windows Firewall includes the following tabs:
    >General
    >Exceptions
    >Advanced

    The General tab includes the following settings:
    >On (recommended)
    >Don't allow exceptions
    >Off (not recommended)


    When you click to select Don't allow exceptions, Windows Firewall blocks all requests to connect to your computer, including requests from programs or services that are listed on the Exceptions tab. The firewall also blocks discovery of network devices, file sharing, and printer sharing.

    The Don't allow exceptions option is useful when you connect to a public network, such as one that is associated with an airport or with a hotel. This setting helps protect your computer by blocking all attempts to connect to your computer.

    When you use Windows Firewall with no exceptions, you can still view Web pages, send and receive e-mail, or use an instant messaging program.


    The Exceptions tab lets you add program and port exceptions to permit certain types of inbound traffic. You can set a scope for each exception.

    For home and small office networks, we recommend that you set the scope to the local network only, if it is possible. This configuration enables computers on the same subnet to connect to the program on the computer, but drops traffic that originates from a remote network.

    The Advanced tab lets you configure the following:
    >Connection-specific rules that apply for each network interface.
    >The Security Logging configuration.
    >Global Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) rules that apply to ICMP traffic. (This traffic is used for error and status information transmission.)
    >Default settings.

    Thank you.
