How to check for Windows 7 Firewall Rules existance RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi to everyone! Please help me find a solution. How to check for rules existance in windows firewall.

    I am trying to enumerate the rules, but cannot access needed rule by name:

     INetFwPolicy2 firewallPolicy = (INetFwPolicy2)Activator.CreateInstance(
                    Type.GetTypeFromProgID("HNetCfg.FwPolicy2"));
               
                INetFwRules fwRules = firewallPolicy.Rules;            
                foreach (INetFwRule fwRule in fwRules)
                {
                   if (fwRule.Name == "Test")
                   {
                       //i want to do something here, but 
                       condition doesn't work
                   }
                }
