Disabled GPO Firewalls; still can't RDC or ping workstation
Posted on 2006-05-20
I'm trying to use RDC to connect from home to my network server (thorugh a firewall), then from the server to a workstation in the domain. I have no trouble getting to the server (SBS2003), but Windows Firewall was enabled on the workstation and I had Global Policies in place to enable the firewall--these are now disabled. I still can't ping the workstation (by IP or domain name)--do I need to reboot the workstation or reset something locally in order for the policy to take effect? I've read something about ADM files needing to be refreshed; can I do this from the server?
