Adding the Windows Firewall Components to Your Configuration (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)

4/23/2012

There are two Windows Firewall components: the Windows Firewall and Internet Connection Sharing component, and the Windows Firewall Control Panel component.

The Windows Firewall and Internet Connection Sharing component sets the Windows Firewall to On (recommended), by default, and can be configured to open specific ports and allow specific applications through the firewall.
