I am needing to active Remote Administration on my XP Pro SP2 systems and I was told I could do it through Group Policies.  
This was suggested but I do NOT have the Network Connections under the policy editor.  Why?

The group policy settings are in:

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