    Does anyone happen do know the command for the Advanced Firewall settings in
    Win
    XP. I tried `wf.msc' (which may be just for Vista) on my wife's WinXP
    computer and it doesn't work.

    Are you looking for firewall.cpl?

    Terry, `firewall.cpl' is not what I was looking for. If you have a vista
    machine and you do Run===WF.msc you'll get a pretty comprehensive app that
    allows for many firewall setting including lists of outgoing/ingoing
    firewall settings, with an ability to disable any, add more, etc. . Maybe XP
    just doesn't have this.
