My Windows Firewall Exceptions were removed automatically in SBS 2003 domain environment.
Posted on 2006-05-30
In the past we have been able to setup local port exceptions for windows firewall from the client pc. We are all administrators in a small 4 person office. On Friday 5/26/06, we set up 3 local port exceptions on 3 client pcs to try out our new antivirus software. The software is a product by Grisoft. After configuring the local ports, definitions were downloaded, and everything was working fine.
We came in Tuesday morning and on two of the pcs, all of the exceptions had been removed. One pc still had two of the exceptions left, but one had been removed.
I checked our Small Business Server Window Firewall Group Policy to make sure that local exceptions were still allowed, and they are. Anyone know what happened, or what might have happened?
