Turning off the XP firewall

by JEPott In reply to how to turn off the firew ...

To turn off the XP firewall on a given NIC you simply need to do the following:

1) Go into your firewall settings (you can get there by going to the control panel and then select firewall settings (I'm looking at the control panel in the 'classic view')).
2) Click on the Advanced tab.
3) You can select/deselect each of your NIC's from this location.

Hope that helps,
