Description of the critical update for Windows Firewall "My Network (subnet) only" scoping in Windows XP Service Pack 2 (886185).
This update helps narrow the definition of the My network (subnet) only, or local subnet, scope option in Windows Firewall. This is helpful in situations where Windows Firewall would consider a large network to be on the local subnet because of how the dial-up software configured the route tables. After you install critical update 886185, you may have to restart your computer.
