Help with the Windows Firewall and Group Policy (Standard Profile)
Posted on 2007-10-03
I have a few users that have laptops (XP SP2) here at the office. I am running Server 2003 and I am trying to setup a Group Policy that will disable the Windows firewall when the laptop is here in the office but enable the Windows firewall when they are off the domain.
I have enabled the firewall under the Domain Profile in the GPOE and disabled the firewall under the Standard Profile. When I test these settings, the laptop when connected to the domain has the firewall enabled. Obviously, this is not what I want. If I change the Group Policy under the Standard Profile to disable the firewall and reapply the GP, the laptop disables the firewall as it should.
Any thoughts on how I can achieve what I am looking for?
