I'm sure decent IT people know of W2K so-called firewall. Its really more of a fine tuning of packet acceptence when on the network. But, doing this too well may make the user system seem to have a firwall, but really its more "picky" rather than protected are the best words I can describe it. Find a 3rd party firewall like ZoneAlarm or similar is far more user friendly and right from the start protetcion capable w/o digging into W2K setting. Under XP, only made these same setting more open to user intervention and thus gave "basic" firewall protection. As a lot of users know the XP firewall while capable isn't a full-blown shield against the malware out there, so again, look for better firewall offereing.
or does it?
I found this site that claims it does.
Does anyone know anything about this.
