Default firewall taskkiller

um.... can anyone tell me how to write a short program to knockout a network firewall???? HEHEHE... i kno i know.... but still. At my school, for example, a friend of mine worte a short one where you taskkill the remote server, so the admins couldn't watch us for a little while. So I presumed something similar can be done for knocking out a firewall. No im not some messed up phsycho hacker.

Default Re: firewall taskkiller

search for two programs,

one is called TLIST.exe
the other KILL.exe

They are both by microsoft,
Tlist is like a task manager but opperated from the command line.
Kill stops any process (even windows proteted processes), but you need the PID of the process that can be found using tlist.

you'll only be able to stop the process on machines you have the programs installed on, and only if you can run the programs on thet computer...

I don't think you'll find a way to stop a firewall remotly, most firewalls are designed to be pretty secure.

sort of like ps ax and kill -9 on *nix. is this firewall on the computer itself? or is it on a router you all connect to?
