Does anyone know a way to hide the ISA 2004 FW client other than by manually ticking the "Hide icon in notification area...." tick box? Can it be done with the registry or by editing a text file? Or perhaps a GPO?

Hiding the TrayIcon is very easy.

goto to the %systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Firewall Client 2004
and edit Common.ini

add following section

[TrayIcon]
TrayIconVisualState=1

Now when u logon again u will see that the Firewall Tray Icon is hidden.
if u set the value to 0 it will be visible again.

<Dosfreak>...

Is this for ISA 2004 Sp1 firewall client? I can't seem to get it to work. If I manually check the box, this file does not get updated.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

Wrong place, wrong time...

%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Firewall Client 2004\management.ini

THe following line of KiX code would change the INI but it would not take effect right away. Better to use the FWCTool.

$RC = WriteProfileString(%USERPROFILE%+'\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Firewall Client 2004\management.ini','TrayIcon','TrayIconVisualState','1')

How remiss of me to post untested advice. I cannot find anything in the FWCTool that would hide the icon.

Sorry [Frown]

p.s. I did test my KiX code.

Is there any way to do this using a GPO?

None of this stuff works, I have used the
goto to the %systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Firewall Client 2004
and edit Common.ini

add following section

[TrayIcon]
TrayIconVisualState=1

and it does not do anything, so then I tried it in the other .ini file Management.ini i think anyways that didn't work either.

So is there something I am missing here? do my workstations have to be SP2? (they are anyways) My ISA Server2004 is on W2k3 SP1

Getting frusterated with this lack of configuration BS first I tried the .msi install thru a GPO but soon found out the the stupid configuration box for the client came up for EVERY USER! so now I have to go to 200+ plus computers and install the FW manually, so that won't happen but now I am coming across this problem GRRRRRRRRR.
Help please.

Basically, you just need to delete the shortcut from the StartUp Start Menu folder. If you're deploying the client using group policy, you can use the .MST file at www.scottes.com/MS_FWC.zip
