Maximize Value from Microsoft Defender

In this ebook, you’ll learn why Red Canary’s platform and expertise bring you the highest possible value from your Microsoft Defender for Endpoint investment, deployment, or migration.

Notice how NWLink (IPX/SPX compatible protocol) places itself on top of the binding order! This something you don’t want to keep if you’re on a strictly Windows 2000 network with some occasional NetWare access.

  1. You can also disable specific protocols. For example, if you have 2 NICs and you don’t need NWLink bound to the File and Print Service you can un-check the check box next to that protocol under the specific service.

Note that when you do so, the File and Print Sharing (and the Client for Microsoft Networks) services will have a gray check-box on the NIC’s properties box.

This is to indicate that the specific service has some un-bound protocols. If all protocols are bound to the service, the gray check-box disappears.

  1. Press OK.
  2. If you are prompted to restart, press Yes.
