AOL has deliberately made their software incompatible with WinXP's
firewall. AOL's proprietary connection applet is deliberately
designed to preclude your setting/adjusting any of its properties, to
include enabling/disabling WinXP's firewall, which is
connection-specific. This is normally of little consequence to most
AOL users, as all are protected from the real Internet behind AOL's
own firewall. Remember, AOL is _not_ an Internet Service Provider;
they're an On-Line Content Provider. Two very different things.
Contact AOL's tech support for resolution of problems with (or
caused by) their product.
