Hi there, I am trying to retrieve the current state of the Windows XP firewall in my program. I can do it fine for the local firewall settings, however I don't know how to retrieve it when the PC is in a domain with a GPO setting for it.
Here is a snippet of my code: I can determine when the firewall profile is of type NET_FW_PROFILE_DOMAIN, but how do I retrieve it? in MSDN I can only see a method to retrieve the local one.
HRESULT CFirewall::WindowsFirewallInitialize(OUT INetFwProfile **fwProfile)
*fwProfile = NULL;
// Create an instance of the firewall settings manager.
hr = CoCreateInstance(__uuidof(NetFwMgr), NULL, CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER, __uuidof(INetFwMgr), (void **)&fwMgr);
ShowError("CoCreate Instance failed.", hr);
hr = fwMgr->get_CurrentProfileType(&fwPType);
//if(fwPType == NET_FW_PROFILE_DOMAIN) //domain type get its settings
// Retrieve the current firewall policy. Local or Domain
hr = fwMgr->get_LocalPolicy(&fwPolicy); //this will retrieve the local policy only, how do I get the Domain based profile instead?
ShowError("Get local policy failed.", hr);
// Retrieve the firewall profile currently in effect.
hr = fwPolicy->GetProfileByType(fwPType, fwProfile);
ShowError("Get current profile failed.", hr);
