Enable Windows Firewall on XP Machines via GP

Dear Experts,

I'd like to enable windows firewall on windows XP machines via Group policy. I've had a quick look but there's multiple settings in various places e.g.
Windows Settings --> Security Settings --> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security but there's also:  
Administrative Templates --> Network --> Network Connections --> Windows Firewall

Can you please tell me which setting I need just to basically turn on the firewall?

Windows Firewall with Advanced Security is only for Vista+ machines, so you need to use the one found under Administrative Templates --> Network --> Network Connections --> Windows Firewall.

You can configure it for two scenarios, when connected to a domain and when not (standard).  To turn it on, use the "Protect all network connections" setting and set it to enabled.
