    Can anyone provide how to save Private Firewall v.7 configuration settings?
    xp pro sp3

    .... such that all the entries & their levels of config can be restored
    or implemented on another machine?

    I saved both HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PWI, Inc.

    and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PWI, Inc.

    but after importing these into the registry of another machine -
    (cloned system but different hardware, if that matters)

    I rebooted, but still had to make all my entries.

    So what's the magic file/reg entry that duplicates everything in 1 click?

    Thanks for any helps `

    Rt Click Cop Icon in System Tray
    Lt Click Main Menu on Cop's pop-up menu (this gets you PFW's GUI)
    Lt Click "File" in upper left corner of GUI
    Lt Click "Export Setting" on "File"'s drop-down menu
    Poof! - it's done

    updated - just for cleanliness sakes, I reimaged, then reinstalled PFw,
    then clicked the File > Import Settings, and immediate Happiness :cool:

    so far, this lean/mean fw really pleases me -
    upon install I followed bellgamin's approach -


    Settings > Basic tab ...... checked "Manual Control" & "Disable Auto Response"

    Advanced tab ..... checked "Enable Process Detection", unchecked "Enable Training"

    set Process Monitor slider to Off, because I'll spend time thoroughly investigating those later

    then invested maybe 8 minutes to click through all my apps in C:\Program Files, and set the Allow/Deny for internet access -

    now, nobody goes out on the wire except who I approve :thumb: :thumb:

    after that, there's only an occasional popup, very non-intrusive -
    simply notice the difference between the 2 main popups -

    the brown border is an application wanting to run,
    whilst the blue border is an app wanting to connect out on the wire :

    very simple, just the way i like it :-*
