Enable XP Firewall remotely
Posted on 2004-08-06
Group Policy has a way of not using the xp firewall when on the domain.
before you set this setting, you can tun the firewall on, then after you apply this and they connect to the domain, it disables the firewall only when connected to the domain. this way laptops are protected when connected at home on DSL or at airports.
I need a way to enable the xp firewall remotely and apply the above policy. It would be a lot of work to visit all laptops we have.
you can enable the xp firewall through gpo, but it cancels out the "prohibit use of xp firewall while on domain".
can't have that...
