Windows Firewall GPO

In trying to add a GPO to turn off the Windows Firewall feature on a Windows 2003 / XP SP2 environment, I get a message that the "GPO is not applied because it was filtered out".  It is "empty".  I have checked all of the permissions and made sure that "Authenticated Users" are there, along with their proper permissions.  Does anyone know what is going on?  I've created and used this GPO successfully at other client locations. However, I am now scratching my head on this one.

Filtering means that there is a security setting that is preventing the policy from being applied.  Have you checked the perms on the policy and ensured that there is no deny policy set?

Also ensure that the affected computer is in the correct OU to have the GPO applied...

Hi joebarbaro,

i dont know why but often you need to right click onthe policy and click enforce - that usually does the trick - did you do any form of securty filtering?
