Disable SBS firewall on workstation without the server

crapshooter asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27

i need to disable the firewall on a workstation that USED to be in a SBS network.  The SBS server no longer exists.  I don't want to reconfigure the workstation to be a workgroup computer if I can avoid it.  Is there a way to disable the firewall on the workstation directly instead of through the server?

I think I already know the answer but I thought that I would ask.
