Thread: how to disable firewall

    Default how to disable firewall

    Hello everybody,
    I made an error configuring firewall exceptions and after that the system
    cannot run normally. Under rescue with limitated access I cann log in. I
    thought to disable the firewall with netsh.exe on the command prompt. But
    the command line does not recognize the command:

    "netsh is not recognized as internal or external command". I set the
    path=C:\windows; C:\windows\system32 then it says: "The image
    file C:\windows\system32\netsh.exe is valid but is for machine type other
    than the current machine".
    I have web server 2008 (64 bit).
    Is there other possibility to disable firewall?
    Thanks
    Uwe

    Have you tried right-clicking "Computer" and choosing "Manage?" The
    Firewall settings can be accessed through the Server Manager page that
    pops up. You can also manage the local Windows Firewall through
    Control Panel.

    DO you have a backup of the system? If so, you have the option of
    running a restore.

    If I click to firewall in the control panel then I get the message: "Due to
    an undefined problem Windows could not display firewall settings."

    Yes, I have a backup! But The Server Backup console from Administrative
    Tools is not displayed. I am in recovery system mode, but I do not see how
    to restore.

    Uwe,

    It may appear you locked yourself out. However, I can't remember a
    firewall setting that would lock a user out.

    Have you looked in the registry? This is for XP, but the settings are
    similar, if not the same.

    Also, see if this helps:

    I do not have a subkey SharedAccess in
    HKLM,"System\CurrentControlSet\Services\

    I do not believe, that the setting are similar. Where in the registry of
    server 2008 is firewall configuration?

    Based on the first article I posted, looking at the path, I looked and
    found it on both my 2008 and 2008 R2 servers in:

    HKLM,"System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAcce ss\Parameters\

    and under that key, you will find:
    DomainProfile
    FirewallRules
    PublicProfile
    RestrictedServices
    StandardProfile

    Are you saying that key and subkeys do not exist in your 2008
    installation?

    Now I solved the problem! Thank you for your help! My difficulty was that I
    loaded all the time the registry of the rescue system and there is no these
    keys there! Then I learnt to load Hive - the system of my server as
    temporary key. There I changed the setting so as you explained!
    Thank you very much, you all for help! I am very happy now!

    I'm very h appy you figured it out. That was something I didn't think
    of when you were mentioning Windows CE in your other post. It makes
    sense that you would have to load the hive. I thought you were
    directly on the machine.

    I'm glad you figured it out!!
