Advanced XP firewall control in a domain setting
Posted on 2007-11-21
Here's the situation. I have a number of LAN users inside our hardware firewall, and a number of remote users that are occasionally connected via VPN (if not on VPN they are on someone else's network).
I'm looking for a way to disable the XP firewall on all the LAN users (easy, global policy...), and disable the XP firewall on the remote users ONLY when they are connected to our network. I can't install any non-standard software on the remote user's machines (microsoft updates / components are ok). The domain controller is running Windows Server 2003. Any ideas or solutions? Thanks!
