Does Embedded Compact 7 has Firewall?

Paithankar, Nilesh 21 Reputation points

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?

    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.
