Description:Summary:
Allows Windows Defender Firewall to record information about the
unsolicited incoming messages that it receives.

If you enable this policy setting, Windows Defender Firewall writes the information to a log file.
You must provide the name, location, and maximum size of the log file. The location can contain
environment variables. You must also specify whether to record information about incoming messages
that the firewall blocks (drops) and information about successful incoming and outgoing connections.
Windows Defender Firewall does not provide an option to log successful incoming messages.

If you are configuring the log file name, ensure that the Windows Defender Firewall service account
has write permissions to the folder containing the log file. Default path for the log file is
%systemroot%\system32\LogFiles\Firewall\pfirewall.log.

If you disable this policy setting, Windows Defender Firewall does not record information in the log
file. If you enable this policy setting, and Windows Defender Firewall creates the log file and adds
information, then upon disabling this policy setting, Windows Defender Firewall leaves the log file
intact.

If you do not configure this policy setting, Windows Defender Firewall behaves as if the policy
setting were disabled.
