Group Policy Windows XP Firewall - Disable for Internal Networks Only?
Posted on 2011-10-03
Currently I have a group Policy for all machines: Domain Profile & Standard Profile where "Protect all network connections" = Disabled. This is a quick basic GP to disable the firewall on all machines.
I would like to allow the firewall to Enable when the Laptops are out-side the office.
It appears I need to allow allow the firewall to come on under the Standard Profile. Is this correct?
If so how do I define my local networks? We have 4 sites and only 2 have DC's\Global Catalogs.
For Example where can I say that when on subnets: 192.168.10.0/24 & 192.168.20.0/24 & 192.168.30.0/24 & 192.168.40.0/24 the firewall is completely disabled?
I know this sounds simple, but since 2004 it appears firewall articles are junked up and I cannot find a simple and CONFIRMED explanation to this.
Please Help, Thanks
