    I've recently installed Plesk 9.5.2 in a Windows 2008 server.
    When I'm logged at plesk and go to Home -> Server Component -> Firewall I can see next to firewall the option "Windows Firewall" but the cycle image is not green, meaning its not Enabled in Plesk.
    I press on the link "Firewall" and it is getting me to the next page:

    Select default Firewall component
    Firewall *
    (box) Windows Firewall

    I press on the Box (tick) and then press OK button.

    it gets me to the previous page (with the server components) and still Windows Firewall is not green.

    I do repeat the same thing, and nothing happens....

    any ideas?

    Did you tried to start Windows Firewall directly in Windows but not via Plesk interface. Do you have any related error messages in Event Viewer?

    So firewall is On and Working.

    Fix for firewall

    Hi All

    Yes - I got a solution for this and it works perfectly - there is a hotfix as follows;

    ---------------------------------------

    Looks like the issue was already reported to our developers -- you have Windows 2008 R2, and in this case Parallels Plesk Panel utility for managing firewall cannot get firewall version (in Windows 2008 R2 in the place where Plesk is looking for firewall version there's empty string). This will be fixed entirely in future versions, but we have a hotfix (if required). If you like, it can be installed on the server: to install, please rename winfwpackage.dll xxx\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin folder to winfwpackage.dll.old (for backup, just in case) and then put there the .dll file from attached archive.
    After that, please open components management in Plesk panel, Settings -> Server Components -> "Refresh". After components are refreshed, Plesk should be able to detect Windows Firewall.

    -------------------------------------

    I assume there is a place you can download these hotfixes - as the one I got was sent directly by parallels support.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers
    Craig

    Craig thank you for posting the solution,
    too bad there is no download area with hotfixes :(

    Maybe IgorG could give us a link to download it here!

    Yeah... shut off the Windows Firewall... That was Plesk's Tech Support solution for my issue.

    It worked for us temporarily, but caused other issues too.

    We ended up having to reinstall. Has not been a "smooth" ride since, but reinstalling did eliminate many of the issues we had. Upgrading to 10.3.1 also lifted a bunch of other errors. Hoping they get even more sorted out in 10.4
