Windows XP Firewall issue in GP

We have a small branch with it's own domain.  In GP we have the firewall set to off for domain profile and on for standard (There are two laptops in the group).

For some reason all of a sudden ONE PC is not picking up that it's on the domain and turning the firewall off.  It is on the same sub net, you can ping the server from the client, and they can use the printers off of it.

What does that policy look for to determine that it's on the domain?  It would think it would be one of the above.  They wouldn't be able to print or access shares.

Thanks!

It should be looking for domain membership, have you tried removing the PC from the domain, rebooting and re-adding the PC.  Maybe something got corrupted.

I have not, but that sounds about right.  I'll give that a shot.

if you want to use a domain network, you will have to connect the machines to the domain. otherwise never use the domain network

Unjoining and rejoining the domain did not work.  Still using the standard profile, not domain.

Strike that, did a gpupdate /force and it turned off.  I just hope it stays off! LOL
