windows 7 firewall log

3 posts in this topic

Hello everybody

We have issue with firewall in windows7: on few notebooks (HP 4730s) which came preinstalled with win7pro64 and are joined in domain, when pfirewall.log file reach the size of 32 MB (specified by "netsh advfirewall set allprofiles logging maxfilesize 32767"), and system should rename it to pfirewall.log.old and start logging to new file, nothiong happens.I searched the web and found no info about this... Does anyone have experience with this problem, or idea what direction to go please?

That's not what Technet says:

The default maximum file size for the log is 4,096 kilobytes (KB). If you want to change this, clear the Not configured check box, and type in the new size in KB, or use the up and down arrows to select a size. The file will not grow beyond this size; when the limit is reached, old log entries are deleted to make room for the newly created ones.
