Group Policy on XP Firewall (SP2)

Hello all,
I recently upgraded all the pc's at work to Sercive Pack 2 for Windows XP. We also have a server running Microsoft Server 2003.

Upon installing SP2 it automatically enabled the windows firewall on all machines. I have been trying to install a networked fax program on all machines but it does not work because the firewall automatically blocks it. I have tried on all machines to modify the firewall but it tells me that it is controlled by a 'group policy' and I need to contact the administrator. I am the bl**dy administrator!

I have checked the Server and cannot find any settings and all other machines do not give me access to modify.

Does anybody know how to get into this group policy?

Hope this helps...

Added to that...Most of the companies vary of SP2 because of these kinda admin tasks...Let M$ boast tht they are fixing up security n reducing costs...who accounts for these kind of admin work n man hours..:)
