Turning off Windows Firewall on remote computer not on domain
Posted on 2011-02-22
Ok, here's a good one. Have several remote computers that connect back to our domain through VPN. These computers are not part of the domain. They are given a DHCP address through the VPN, and I can reach them on the LAN. Problem I'm having is this: I want to disable Windows Firewall on these machines without having to remote in with VNC and do it manually. I have tried using gpedit.msc gpcomputer from the command line, but I don't have the correct login credentials for it to work on that machine (local users on these machines have different logins than our domain). What's the solution here?
