Firewall Settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good evening,

    According to my Network and Sharing Center, file sharing and Network Discovery is on.  File sharing is grayed out so that changes can not be made.  Network Discovery indicates it can be changed through the firewall.  However, One Care's firewall setting indicates both of these settings are turned off.

    Which setting should I believe?

    Thank you,

     With OneCare installed, the Windows firewall and associated settings are disabled. All configuration is doen from within the OneCare interface.
