Windows Firewall and Offline folders ....
Posted on 2006-03-23
I have recently carried out a migration from Windows 2000 server to Windows 2003 Small business server, the changeover went very well, except for the following;
However I try in group policy to disable the Windows Firewall, on the client PC it says that group policy is controlling it and it remains enables.
Also the Offline Files icon remains in the system tray pointing to the old server however many times I try to disable it, it still returns.
I have been told by my client that the system is now very slow since the migration, I have checked all network settings and tested DNS all OK, so it is my understanding that the above problems are causing my slowness problems, I appreciate that someone will say it is a good idea to keep the firewall enabled but the system does have a Watchguard firewall so this is not necessary at the workstation level.
Please help as soon as possible to get this client off my back.
