How do you add a system service exception to the windows xp
professional sp2 firewall. Just like the "File and Printer Sharing" or
"Remote Desktop" preconfigured exceptions. Thanks!

Group policy?

No to group policy.

You have to know the protocol (IE. TCP/UDP/IP etc) and the port it uses,
then you understand the exceptions area of the firewall. Personally I use the
firewall in my antivirus for that. I turn Windows firewall off. The Windows
firewall ships wide open and all the hacks know which ports are available.

What exactly do you mean?

Thanks for the links. But neither of them helped. I want to create a
"System Service Exception" for the firewall. If you open up the
exceptions list of Windows XP SP2 or Windows 2003 SP2 you will see a
"File and Printer Sharing" item in the list. This is setup by default.
If you edit it you will see it has a list of ports (4 in total)
associated with it. The dialog title is "Edit a Service". I would like
to create one of these. So I can have 1 item in the exception list
that is linked to multiple ports. The only think I have been able to
find out is that they are called a "System Service Exception" but
can't figure out how to create them.

Did you look in your policy editor?
