How to TCP/IP filtering options for IPv4 in Vista?

P

Pushkar

Hi,
I was trying to set TCP/IP filtering options through Advanced settings of
IPv4 protocol in Vista, but I found that there is no options tab available
there.
This tab was there in Windows XP. Is this setting disabled for Vista or is
it done through some other way?

I have attached the image of advanced settings tab for XP and Vista.

Apart from options Tab, Registry values that were used in XP to tweak this
setting is also not there. Are the keys valid in XP are still valid in Vista
at same path?
Or path is changed?

Thanks in Advance.

Windows Firewall is the UI used to change filtering settings.

This is necessary because the Windows Firewall supports different "modes"
that a logical "network" can be set to, such as private, public, and domain
that all have different rules... so the rules are no longer attached to a
network interface but a mode.

- Click Start -> Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Administrative
Tools
- Double-click Windows Firewall with Advanced Security

Thanks Jimmy for your quick reply.

Now in Windows Vista Windows Firewall is UI is used for these settings. So
can I safely assume that the follwoing registry keys:
System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\EnableSecurityFilters
System\CurrentControlSet\Services\<adapter name>\ Parameters\Tcpip\
RawIpAllowedProtocols
System\CurrentControlSet\Services\<adapter name>\
Parameters\Tcpip\TcpAllowedPorts
\CurrentControlSet\Services\<adapter name>\ Parameters\Tcpip\UdpAllowedPorts
are not used in Vista or these keys still hold some meaning?

Is Vista Firewall settings saved at following localtion or at some other
location?
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\FirewallRules

So If I just want to know what are all the allowed TCP/IP ports I need to go
through all the rules and then find out which ports are allowed.

Thanks,

Sorry, I am not familiar with the registry keys used by these services.

I'm not sure about the UI in Vista Beta 2, but in the Pre-RC1 build it is
very easy to see what rules are in place and what ports they are for.
