if you have bash installed on this windows box, then you may be able
to use shell script as an installer if you configure full path to it
in the "Installer" tab of firewall settings dialog. Generally, it
should work on windows the same as it works on Linux, except I never
You may need to wrap the shell script in windows batch file because
windows does not recognize standard Unix shell syntax of "#!/bin/sh"
in the first line of the script and won't start bash to interpret it
for you. If you do not want to do it, put full path to bash in the
"Policy install script" field and path to your install script in
"Command line options for this script" field.
