I have just carried out a migration from SBS 2003 with ISA server to SBS 2011 standard.
Unfortunately the server firewall and all client firewalls are switched off on the domain somewhere in group policy but I cannot find out where. I want them switched back on preferrably with the abilty to switch them off temporairly if needs must to test issues.
I have also had a problem with the ISA proxy settings keeping switching on even though they were set to not configured. To get round that I had to set the proxy as configured but with no port or IP address in the Internet Explorer settings in Group Policy.
The firewall is givving me more of a headache though.

Have you removed the ISA firewall client from all work stations post-migration?

To set the proxy through group policy can be undertaken using this guide.
http://kb.k12usa.com/Knowledgebase/Windows-2008-Group-Policies-for-Internet-Explorer

To set the windows firewall as on is from this one.
edit the domain policy - assuming you want this across the full domain.
computer config, policies, windows settings, security settings, Windows firewall with advanced security.

Expand this section then right-click the top node (usually includes ldap://guid address ion the title) and select properties. You can edit it all from here.

This is for server 2012 but 2011 is not that different I believe in regards to gpo.

I have already looked at that for the Proxy. The proxy was set as not configured but was still adding a proxy on IE. To get round that I had to set it to enable the Porxy and leave the IP address and port fields empty. The ISA client has never been installed on the client PCs.
I have a bigger problem with the Client and server firewalls. They are Off for the Domain and I want them on

Just had another look at the Firewall settings. And that was set to OFF for domain so I have set it to not configured. It has sorted the server but I will have to check the clients later when I get on site. Don't know how how I missed that one..
Thanks for your help

Welcome :)

However, not configured may not fix it.... Not configured means (usually) that no policy is set and therefore use what has been set locally but we'll see.
