  • Windows XP SP 2 is out.

    I downloaded it from betanews.com. It's faster than MS site. And one of my friend told me about this utility to stream this SP2. I'm going to give it a try and let you know how it works.

    You can download that utility http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=188337

                Me thinks SP2 is going to keep me busy for months (fixing things)
                1 1 was a racehorse.
                2 2 was 1 2.
                1 1 1 1 race 1 day,

                    A bit of warning
                    I tried installing sp2, right after a oem installation of xp pro - slipstreamed sp1a
                    the mother board is: ASUS p4ps-mx. (sis 651)

                    After installation is sucessfully completed, machine rebots and never succeeds in loading winxp, when looking at the startup in safe mode,
                    it was a certain service, i disabled it with xp cd recover mode, then another service caused a problem, disabled it too, and then another service didn't load at startup.

                    i tried installing sp2 3 times!!
                    all of them got me to the same problem
                    i finally gave up and installed that machine with out sp2.

                    so for all of u company admins, with many diffrent computer systems, i would mass install it at once, but slowly , slowly integrate it..

                    and for god sakes, don't treat this as another update that tells u to back up, and u think "sure sure", realy back up your system in this case

                      microsoft does wanna help us:

                      Application Compatibility Guide for Windows XP SP 2

                      it only takes some time to read it, and there are a few nice scripts for opening ports, or closing them for example.

                        Thanks Dumber for that info. I just got ISA Server 2004 Standard Edition. I never experienced it before so I don't know if ISA client is better than Windows Firewall Client or not. Please advise. Thanks!

                          the firewall client from ISA is NOT a personal firewall. ISA itself is a firewall. The ISA client can be used to allow specific client apps through ISA only when the isa client has been configured.

                          The Windows Firewall is a personal Firewall. For example: you can't access the remote machine (with Windows Firewall enabled) with Dameware or Remote Desktop if you didn't open explicity the correct ports.

                          You can access an machine with Dameware or Remote Desktop where the ISA client is installed. So, the ISA client doesn't block anything.

                            this url seems a nice and objective article.
                            maybe nice to read it. the most part of the article is for home users related.

                            WinXP SP2 = security placebo?
