Vista removes my firewall added rules RRS feed

  • Question


    I have Vista Business Edition.
    I install my network program using installshield. The installshield will call a program
    to add allowedprogram to exception listof the firewall using netsh firewall add allowedprogram....

    Everything works fine after the installation of my program. I see my program added in the exception
    list of the firewall settings.

    However, after a while of running, or when I reboot, I don't see my program in the exception list
    any more. It seems to me that the system auto delete or something after sometime.

    Can someone help?

    Thank a lot

  • Is the Application that you install that changed the firewall rules, VISTA designed software ? You might be setting the Firewall per login session. If you are part of a domain set Group Policy Firewall rules.
