How do you deploy inbound firewall rules using group policy server 2008
Posted on 2011-05-06
I am lookig for a way to delpoy windows firewall rules for inbound connections and delpy them using Group policy on server 2008.
I have tried to do this already by going to the following path in the GP edit console. Computer configuration> Windows Settings> Security Setting> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.
I then Created the approriate rules under the Inbound section and set windows firewall to on.
This has still not changed any windows firewall settings on domain machines when logged in as a domain account.
Can someone help me and explain how or if it is even possible to deploy Windows firewall settings using Group policy to windows 7 machines?
(other group policy rules are applied such as background and drive maps)
