Isn't that a good thing?  I would expect that is one of the things that 
the firewall is supposed to prevent.

XP SP2 and Nessus






Has anyone done any testing with XP SP2's firewall and Nessus?  I've
begun a few simple tests and am finding that Nessus completely fails to
scan the system when SP2's firewall is enabled.
