He says he's using Windows Firewall. Comes bundled with the "Security Center" in Windows XP SP2.

I disabled it though, I'm using Norton Personal Firewall instead.

you right click on your net connection.
Choose Properties
Go to the advanced tab.
Click settings.
Go to the advance tab.

click on security logging settings
and put a check mark in what you want to log.


Then that log is found in windows called pfirewall
