how can i get XP machines that are "part" of the domain to use the domain settings (found in windows firewall - general tab - near to lower left). some of my machines state "Windows Firewall is using your non-domain settings" and of course i want them to be assocated with the group policy of the domain controller. all machines XP SP3, server is sbs2003 sp2 and up to date.

    gpupdate /force should work.

    Are all xp computers part of the container where this policy is applied.
    have you changed local security policy on those PC's maybe?

    if gpudpate /force helped, simple restart should help too, at least that's what it should be.
