I need to disable the firewall on all computers in the domain with SBS 2008.
They are all greyed out.
Something happened over the weekend and I can't access a software file on the server and the software support wants me to disable the firewall on the WS and the server temporary.
where is the setting to disable the server controling the ws and other member servers.

All I need is to allow port 1205 on the server.
I installed Symantec over the weekend and thats when I noticed the users can't access a DB off the server and it needs port 1205. If I telnet to the server on that port I get denied.
The sonicwall firewall was not messed with over the weekend so I don't think it is that.

Did you install just Symantec AV or also the Firewall they produce?

To use GPO to disable the Firewall, from your default Domain GPO:

Expand the Computer Configuration folder, then the Administrative Templates folder.
 Expand the Network folder, then the Network Connections folder, then the Windows Firewall folder.
 Select the Standard Profile folder.
 Double-click the Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections option.
 Select Disabled, then click OK.
 Select the Domain Profile folder.
 Double-click the Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections option.
 Select Disabled, then click OK.

I had to use the registry edit to disable the firewall. And now the DB works. I have to play with it to get it to work while enabled.
