Is there a disable policy in the GPO for the Windows Firewall?  If so, where is it exactly? Just sick of hunting for it.

The group policy settings are in:

Computer Configuration- Administrative Templates- Network- Network Connections- Windows Firewall- Domain Profile
or
Computer Configuration- Administrative Templates- Network- Network Connections- Windows Firewall- Standard Profile

To turn off the firewall you need to set "protect all network connections" to disabled

I went to

Computer Configuration- Admin Templates - Network - Network and Dial-up Connections

From there, all I have listed is Prohibit configuration of connection sharing. Is the Firewall only going to show up if I'm running GPMC from a system with SP2 installed?

Are you accessing the GPMC from your domain controller. The new policy settings are in the new admin template that comes with SP2. If you access the GPMC from the DC then it should automaticall update with the new admin templates if any of your clients already have SP2.

You can also download the new admin pack from:

luv2smile, you asked if I'm accessing the GPMC from the DC. The DC is a 2K box. Can the GPMC be installed on 2K or is it XP or 2K3 only?

I've accessed and created a GPO from a member 2K3 server. Then I accessed the AD Users and Computers snap-in and created a new GPO, but the XP and 2K3 objects still aren't there, even in the GPO's I created from the 2K3 server.

I've also replaced the original .adm files on the 2K server with those I downloaded for SP2. Still nothing. What am I doing wrong?

Answered part of my question by trying it. The GPMC cannot be installed on a 2K box. That was really answered by Chris-Dent on another question I posted earlier. So I'm still stuck where I was.
