Using group policy objects to open ports on local machines (SBS2003)

I need to find out how to create group policy objects on a windows small business server 2003 environment and enforce the policy on the domain so the client workstations will open ports on the windows firewall.

How do I do this? Is it possible?

I need to know how to do this from the server side, not the client workstation.

Do you mean that you need to open ports on the server, or you need to edit the GPOs on the server to open ports on the workstations?

I need to edit the GPOs on the server to open ports on the workstations.

So, when a workstation logs into the domain, it will grab its configuration, including these firewall settings.
