I am trying to setup firewall policy so all computers will have firewall off when in office and firewall on when outside of office.  I would like to have all default settings on when outside of office.

Hello Lontech,

You can enable the following in a GPO: Prohibit use of Internet Connection Firewall on your DNS domain network located in Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Network Connections.

NOTE: If you enable the "Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections" policy setting, the above setting will have no effect on computers that are running Windows Firewall (XP SP2 clients and later).

Here is an article that is very useful for determining what settings need to be applied to get the desired results: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457149.aspx

Windows Server 2008 is different.  Unfortunately this solution doesn't apply to this situation though I think that I may have found the result myself and am now testing it.
