What is FwcMgmt.exe?

Part of Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server by Microsoft (R)

What is it?

Microsoft Firewall Client Management is a software component of Microsoft Windows that provides firewalling and packet filtering functions. The firewall is based on the Windows Filtering Platform. With the advanced packet filter, rules can also be specified for source and destination IP addresses and port ranges.
Description of fwcmgmt.exe from Microsoft (R)
A Firewall client is a computer with Firewall Client software installed and enabled. Windows Sockets (Winsock) applications running on Firewall clients can send requests to remote destinations transparently through the Microsoft Firewall service of ISA Server. Setting up Firewall Client does not configure individual Winsock applications. Instead, a dynamic-link library (FwcWsp.dll) in the Firewall Client software becomes a Winsock layered service provider (LSP) that all Winsock applications use transparently. This way, the Firewall Client LSP can intercept Winsock function calls from client applications and then route a request to the original underlying base service provider if the destination is local or to the Firewall service on an ISA Server computer if the destination is remote.
