Service Pack 2 For Windows XP Coming To A PC Near You
Posted by Ed Hansberry @ 12:00 PM

The long awaited Service Pack 2 for Windows XP will be on your XP based PC soon. Beta testers and subscribers to MSDN may already have it. Microsoft will put it on the Windows Update site and push it out via Automatic Updates in the coming days and weeks.

I mainly wanted to alert you to a few changes in SP2 that will apply to mobile device users that use ActiveSync. By default, XP now enables the 'Windows Firewall' which replaces the anemic 'Internet Connection Firewall' that came with XP in 2001. You will need to create two exceptions in the new Windows Firewall for ActiveSync, but XP should help you do this with relative ease."
