"Certified for Server 2008" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is one of the requirements for an application to be certified on Windows Server 2008 is its ability to handle applicable Firewall rules and make exceptions and entries as required for proper client/server communication for that application?

  • Hello,


    These are the only requirements of the Logo program regarding Firewalls.


    Req 4.6 : Follow best practices for Windows Error Reporting, IPV6, and Firewall

    TC4.6.1 : Best Practices for Windows Error Reporting, IPv6, and Firewall


    Application must function properly with, and must not disable Microsoft Firewall or an approved third party Certified Firewall.


    Firewalls are an integral part of any modern corporate environment. An application under Certification cannot disable the Microsoft Firewall and must work properly with Microsoft’s or any third party Certified Firewall. Any attempt to disable firewall, produce cryptic error messages, or fail Primary Functionality when traversing an existing firewall, will fail this test case.


    A Firewall must be installed at all times, and a failure can occur at any time during the Certification testing process.


    Hope this helps,
