        Re: cant login

        How are you trying to logon -- through Remote Desktop (Terminal Services)?

        Have you given an "Exception" to "Remote Desktop"?

        @wullieb1: Having a "local" firewall installed is a good thing. It helps prevent penetration from those infected consultant laptops we often allow to join our network. HP was the first company I worked for where I learned they expected viruses and attacks from within. I was so used to companies shutting down public utilities (Exchange, etc.) at the first hint of a virus, etc. Never a problem at HP but every machine was a fortress unto itself.

        A local firewall on the machine is a necessary defense. Your question is kind of like asking why one needs an AV solution on each machine inside the firewall. Whacky thought. So is the absence of firewall software on each machine, IMHO.
        Cheers,

          Yep i understand this completely but the windows firewall is not the best in the world. We also run firewalls on all our desktops and laptops although we don't run them on the servers.

          Did they also run these firewalls on the servers??

          Please have a read at this KB atricle

          As you see you have to basically open everything from 1024 up and also alot below it.
