Firewall setting compare RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I want to compare Windows 10 Default firewall setting to our windows 7 firewall  GPO settings. 

    Windows 7 I can Export the GPO and add to the Microsoft Policy Analyzer but How can I  get Windows 10 Default firewall setting in the correct format to use in the Policy Analyzer to compare.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi, 

    Not sure how you just compare the firewall settings in Windows 7, since the export policies i tried has wfw format which cannot use for this tool. 

    The configuration registry pol file is under C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine. 

    You can import this file on the Windows 10 to do the compare.
