Can someone explain to me step by step on how to enable the GPO for Dameware port 6129 in Windows 2003 Active Directory. I'm going to put this at the Top level for all OU's since Dameware is our standard. At this time, if a computer is disjoined from the domain, we've encountered the problem where dameware can't connect. Can I get please steps on how to enable this.

I have the firewall configured, I just need to create a GPO or perhaps in the same GPO of the firewall for Dameware ports.

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you're after doing, but the GPO admin templates for Windows Firewall are contained in

Computer Config > Admin Templates > Network > Network Connections > Windows Firewall.

You can then open:

 "Standard Profile - The standard profile settings that are used by the computers when they are connected to a network that does not contain domain controllers for the domain of which the computer is a member."

"Domain Profile - The domain profile settings that are used by the computers when they are connected to a network that contains domain controllers for the domain of which the computer is a member."

Within either of these, you have the policy setting "Define Port Exceptions". You enable it, then make your entries in the following syntax:

Port:Transport:Scope:Status:Name

So for example - 6129:TCP:*:Enabled:DameWare Exception

*** Obligatory Warning - Before applying any policy such as this, ensure you use a test environment with test comp accounts etc to check you get the desired result... Deploying a GPO such as this to a live environment without thorough testing could cause you problems!! ***

"Also, according to Microsoft, you should also be able to configure the XP-SP2 firewall by pushing out an INF file, or even configuring the necessary ports via AD Group Policies.

==> I have the firewall configured, I just need to create a GPO or perhaps in the same GPO of the firewall for Dameware ports. <==

Bare in mind that when configuring Windows Firewall through a GPO, if you already have the firewall configured using the local method (Control Panel), you may also want to enable the setting "Allow Local Port Exceptions".

This means that the firewall will use both port exception lists, the one in the GPO and the one configured locally. I believe that without this setting, the only list used is the one configured in the GPO...

If you only use a GPO to configure it, then you don't need to worry about this setting... :)

If I've misunderstood the question, can you try explaining it differently?

Cheers!
