I have a network where users run XP SP2.
The Windows Firewall is turned off through GPO, but there are still a lot of
failure audit events in the security log.
We don't want to turn off auditing for security events, but I don't want
Windows FW reporting an event on each listening application.

How can I turn off auditing just for the Windows Firewall?

Hello Amihai,
The logs you are speaking of are not controlled by Windows firewall.
They are turned on or off by the admin. You might find it a lot less trouble
not to log your failures. Unless you are trouble shooting , it can keep you
pretty busy just from having to stop working to clear the logs, ie ,
whenever the securitylog becomes full the system will lock up and only an
admin can log on to clear it. Hope this was some help. Best of luck to you.

I have the same issue as Amihai. Logging is not turned on, but the event
logs are full of these failure audits due to apps listening. How do I turn
them off?
