        Microsoft® Windows® XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) offers many enhancements to the Windows XP operating system. However, when you install Windows XP SP2 on client computers in a Microsoft® Windows® Small Business Server 2003 network, you must also install an update for Windows Small Business Server to gain all the security benefits of the service pack and to avoid application incompatibilities. This update configures the firewall policy in Windows Small Business Server so that the firewall in Windows XP SP2 is enabled, enables the security management features in Windows XP SP2, and opens or closes ports for applications as appropriate. This update is available as a download at the Windows Small Business Server page of the Microsoft Windows Server System Web site at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=31929
