I want to disable the firewall for our corporate LAN, but enable it for all other connections - dial up, wifi, etc...

I know that it is possible to control which NICs are covered by the Windows Firewall installed by XP SP2 in the Advanced Network Connections Settings of WF however what I really need is the registry key information so that I can deploy the change for my desktop management software. (Zen)

I really appreciate any help

    Rather than editing the Registry, you might be able to do this with netsh from the command line. See:
