JSI Tip 8802. Windows XP SP2 cannot modify Windows Firewall settings for an AOL dial-up connection using Control Panel / Network Connections?

The subject behavior will occur if right-clicking the AOL dial-up connection does NOT expose a Properties command.

To workaround this behavior, use Start / Run / firewall.cpl / OK.

NOTE: See Windows Firewall, formerly known as ICF (Internet Connection Firewall).
