3.17. Microsoft Windows Internet Connection Firewall

The OpenAFS Client is compatible with the Internet Connection Firewall that debuted with Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2003 SP1 and the Advanced Firewall that was introduced with Windows Vista. The Internet Connection Firewall will be automatically configured to allow the receipt of incoming callback messages from the AFS file server. In addition, if the OpenAFS Service is manually configured to behave as an SMB Gateway, the appropriate Back Connection registry entries are added to allow SMB authentication to be performed across the Microsoft Loopback Adapter.
