check this technet article for the settings,

if the DC is a SBS then there are additional policies for windows firewall at the domain level, you might want to disable this policy.

By domain policy do you mean a domain group policy? You can disable it using the WinXP SP2 administrative template. It's under Computer Configurations > Network > Network Connections > Windows Firewall > Domain Profile... set "Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections" to "Disabled"

The Server is NOT an SBS.

And yes I want to do it thru the Domain Group Policy
Ok, then my previous post is how you do it. Do you need any additional information?

Hey "kprad"

I don't have that tab in the Group policy in my W S 2003

the only thing I have is the Internet Connection Firewall on my DNS ....

Ok I don't have that.
As far as i can go is this:
Computer Configurations > Network > Network Connections > 
and inside there I have the Internet Connection for the DNS. .... thing that's all I have there.
If you look at the group policy settings spreadsheet, you'll see it should be there:

But like I said, you need the XP SP2 Administrative Template loaded. You can download the adm templates here:
