Hello,

what happens while a Win2000 with Kerio Firewall on, boots up?
When is the firewall active?

If the win2000 os has a bug during the booting intervall it might already happen that the machine could be taken over, if Kerio is not up yet.

Please provide info about this.

Thanks.

No, this cannot happen. KWF driver blocks all incoming traffic until the KWF service starts (with some exceptions like outgoing DHCP). Since the driver is hooked on network card, it is not possible to attack the server during booting.
