Checking WinXP firewall status

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Is there a better way to check the status of WinXP firewall other then by outputing the result of NETSH FIREWALL SHOW STATE to a file and reading it to see if it is ON or OFF.

I've done a script that does this but I'm looking for a smarter way.

Any help?

Thanks

Try

#include <Constants.au3>

$foo = Run(@ComSpec & " /c NETSH FIREWALL SHOW STATE", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
$line = StdoutRead($foo)
MsgBox(0, "STDOUT read:", $line)
Exit

Edit - Removed loop
