Enable logging to view the log file in Windows Vista firewall

In this addition i am going to discuss about windows firewall support for how to enable logging to view log file in windows vista firewall. You can enable the Windows firewall to keep track of all the computers that successfully or unsuccessfully attempt to access your computer. This log file helps detect IP addresses which could belong to potential hackers.

To enable logging to view the log file follow:
1) Click 'Start' and click 'Control Panel'. (The 'Control Panel' window appears.)
'Control Panel' window
2) Click 'Security'. (The 'Security' screen appears.)
'Security' screen
3) Click 'Windows Firewall'. (The 'Windows Firewall' dialog box appears.)
'Windows Firewall' dialog box
NOTE: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, enter your password or click 'Continue'.
4) Click the 'Advanced' tab. (The 'Advanced' tab appears.)
'Advanced' tab
5) Under 'Security logging', click the 'Settings' button. (The 'Log Settings' dialog box appears.)
'Log Settings' dialog box
6) To enable logging of unsuccessful connection attempts, select the 'Log dropped packets' check box. To enable logging of successful connection attempts, select the 'Log successful connections' check box.
NOTE: To view the log file, make a note of the log file's full path under 'Log file options'. Browse to the log file and double-click the file.
7) Click 'OK'.

Solution: Click 'Start' and click 'Control Panel'. Click 'Security'. Click 'Windows Firewall'. Click the 'Advanced' tab. Under 'Security logging', click the 'Settings' button. Select the 'Log dropped packets' check box. Select the 'Log successful connections' check box. Click 'OK'.
