Opening a specific port on all machines in a domain via group policies
Posted on 2007-03-21
I feel a little lost with this one...not even sure if I can do what I'm trying to do.
I'm trying to configure all the computers within the domain to open a certain udp port(required for a network agent to run). My first guess was to go to the group policy in SBS2003 and try mucking about in there....few seconds later I realized this isn't as cut and dry as it had seemed before. The interface confused me silly.
How do I automatically congfigure group policy to open the specified port via policies, or is this even the right way to go about opening the port on all the workstations?
I can go around opening them manually on each machine...but I'd rather do it thru the server.
