I have read many similar articles and posts on how to enable windows firewall logging. I have Win2k8r2 server without any Active Directory, DC, domains and other complicated stuff. Almost all of this article references to GPO and enabling it. The issue I even don't have it in my system. I tried to invoke "gpmc.msc" from my console but it seems I should intall it before using.
Then I set a windows firewall log file location to D:\pfirewalll.log. It creates two files: prifrewall.log and pfirewall.log.old. These have any necessary file system permissions. And they are always blank!
I don't know is there any other mechanisms to turn it on. Should I leverage something in windows registry to make it alive?
Thanks in advance, guys!
