netsh -r

I was hoping to use netsh -r to set firewall settings for a bunch of PC's in
a classroom in a script. However, when I connect to a machine using this
technique and enter the firewall command, I always get the following message.
"The following command not found - firewall.

On the other hand if I use RTS to connect to the same PC and then enter the
netsh command locally, the firewall command is accepted.

Is this a problem or is it by design? I was hoping to run a single script
from one PC to update the firewall settings on all the PC's in the classroom.

Mark:

Try remotely executing the netsh command.
www.sysinternals.com
download utilty suite, pstools.
use psexec with the -u and -p switches.
for example
psexec -u <UserWithAdminRights> -p <AdminPassword> \\<remotePC> netsh ....
That is the equivalent of executing the netsh command locally.
It is transparent to the user and easily facilitates scripting.

Good luck

Good answer and if you use the @file option with a list
of the computers it will go off and do the lot for you :)
