although that reports the firwall config, it doesn't report all settings within the firewall.  it's not reporting any of the GPO firewall settings.

yeah, i see that now.  no mention of firewall setting that come from a GPO.  also, gpresults /v only list the applied policies, not the actual settings.  it's ok, i will get the info i need manually.

Shouldn't you be able to see GPO settings in Settings tab of GPO in Group Policy Managment Console?
