    Does any one know what rules to set for the following essential windows applications? say for any firewalls. what ports to open, udp or tcp or else, in- or out-going

    svchost.exe
    services.exe
    System
    explorer.exe
    and any other built in windows applications that need access, I don't know what they are.

    I need to know the rule set for win2k and xp

    I am using jetico ver 1, and I feel very confused reading the post you gave me. I still don't know what ports to set.

    expecially system. I have no idea what it wants to do. it sends and receives datagram, and has outbound connection. but I don't know which ports are safe for this thing.
