I have turned off the Software Firewall on there server and it seems to reset when the machine is re-booted.  The firewall is using my domain settings.  I am not sure how to check the domina setting for Windowes Firewalls....Can someone help in directing whci GRPolicy or ? is controlling the firewall setting on the server?

Thank you

Hi, click on start and run and type cmd, click ok.

type gpresult and hit enter.

Note the applied group policies on the server (if this is a domain controller then let us know)

You will be looking for a computer configuration policy.  Once you have indentified the GP then you goto GP editor and goto Computer configuration|Administrative Templates|Network/network connection/windows firewall/domain profile, Policy:Windows firewall: protect all network connections set to disable

Also: Network/Network Connections/Windows Firewall/Standard Profile, Policy: Windows firewall:protect all network connections set to disable

This could also be set locally if you do not have a GP with these settings linked to the OU that the server is in.

You will have to check that by running start, run, type gpedit.msc and click ok.  The path is under windows security, security settings, windows firewall with advanced security.  You can set everything to not configured under global and set the firewall state under domain profile settings to off.

You should do this last step if you do identify that the group policy is causing the firewall to enable.
