how can I disable Windows firewall via Group Policy

Recommended Posts

start up the Group Policy Management console (GPMC.MSC) and expand the Default Domain policy, right click and choose Edit.




when the Group Policy Management Editor appears, expand Computer Configuration/Policies/Administrative templates/Network/Network Connections/Windows Firewall/Domain Profile




in the Right pane, double click on the policy called Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections


set it to disabled




done !


you can now check your domain clients and verify that the policy has taken effect (if you want to speed up things open a cmd prompt on the client and issue

gpupdate /force

Do a Group Policy Results against a machine that isn't getting the policy.

I did a clean install again and same results. Client PC has been discovered but client installation PUSH method didnt installed the client on Windows 7 *32 bit* machine.

SCCM 2007 SP2 R2 is installed so its supports the Windows 7 clients but still no luck.

On client side I can see that Firewall rule has been applied.

Any suggestions?
