ENABLE – DISABLE XP FIREWALL

Click on
Start|Control Panel|Network Connections.

Then there are three ways to get to it.

THIS FIRST ONE IS ONLY THERE IF YOU HAVE SWITCH TO 'CLASSIC VIEW"
I.E. THE WAY WIN 98 CONTROL PANEL LOOK:

One:  Look to the Column on your Left and click on “Change Settings of this connection.”
If there is a red check mark to the Left of this Command the Firewall is already enabled.
Or
Two: Double click on the Connection itself.to open it up, and click on “Properties” and
Then on the “Advanced Tab.” To enable, put a check mark in "protect my computer and network
by limiting or preventing access to this computer."
 
OR A THIRD WAY IS TO JUST CLICK ONCE ON THE CONNECTION AND THEN
RIGHT CLICK AND YOUR MENU SHOULD INCLUDE "PROPERTIES" AND THEN
OPEN THAT UP AND FIND 'ADVANCE' AND OPEN THAT UP.

2 DISABLE, TAKE THE CHECK MARK OUT.
