The firewall is not installed

Note If you use role-based administration, you must have the Computer search, protection and groups right to install the firewall. For more information, see Managing roles and sub-estates.

Before you attempt to install the client firewall on endpoint computers, check that the computers are running a Windows client operating system.

Note You cannot install the firewall on computers running server operating systems or Windows Vista Starter.

If there are computers on which you want to install the firewall:

  1. Select the computers, right-click and select Protect Computers.

    The Protect Computers Wizard appears. Click Next.

  2. When prompted to select features, select Firewall. Complete the wizard.
  3. Click Next.
  4. When prompted to select features, select Firewall.
  5. Complete the wizard.
