I've been googling how to configure Windows Native Firewall and found nothing after twenty minutes. The installation instructions recommend configuring it with the following message

Quote
Note that Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) installs a native Firewall on the user's system. Configure it to pass Apache and MySQL; and to allow binding to ports 80 (http) and 3306 (mysql).

This has me running scared. I don't want to mess up another installation. This is already my third try. I know I did it the second time, but for some reason I can't find the info I first had.

I don't want to just disable the firewall. It needs to be configured. But how?

Control Panel > Windows FireWall, Tab Exceptions, Button Add Program, add Apache or Browse to C:\www\Apache22\bin\httpd.exe
