I am struggling to get firewall enabled in wince 7, but not able to find a way to get firewall added in the catalog items.
Does wince 7 has firewall?
if yes, how do I enable it? I have tried creating new OS design with handheld template, I am still not finding firewall in catalog.
what steps should I follow to get the firewall option in catalog?, am I missing any update?
I have windows embedded compact 7 version - 7.5.2890.0 installed.

If firewall is not included in wince 7, then any work around for this?

Thanks,
Nilesh

    Follow the instructions in release notes to add firewall item back.

    ----------

    SYSGEN_FIREWALL Is Not in the Catalog
    To add the Firewall Service (SYSGEN_FIREWALL) to an OS design, you must do one of the following:

    1. Set the SYSGEN_FIREWALL variable at the command line.
    2. When you use the OS Design Wizard to create an OS design founded on the Custom Device design template, select Sample Firewall Service.

    ----------

    Also check this thread.

    Also (again!) check that you may need SYSGEN_NET_WFP and/or SYSGEN_DCOM as stated here if you installed the firewall and it won't work as expected.
