NAC Check for Vista Personal Firewall

Unanswered Question
Apr 15th, 2009

I'm trying to create a new check in NAC to verify Vista's Firewall is enabled. I created a registry check for Windows XP Firewall however it doesn't seem to work with Vista.

Here is the Check I created for XP:

Windows XP Firewall Check

Registry Key:


Registry Value:


If the XP Firewall is on the Value will be = to “1”

any info would be great



I have this problem too.

It's the same setting for Vista as XP. I would check the same area of the registry for a DomainProfile if you use domain computers. There should be a setting there that defines your area of interest with the same key name and same enabled = 1 and disabled = 0 settings.
