SP2 - profile detection without GPO's ?


G

Guest

To activate the correct profile (domain or standard), Windows Firewall
compares DNS suffixes from the network connections and the system that sent
the last GPO.
What if there are no GPO's (like in an NT4 domain) ? How does it know when
you're 'in the domain' ?

First tests here show that it doesn't know, and consequently activate the
standard profile on an XP client in an NT4 domain.

Any idea's how to fix this ?

Hi

As far as I know, there is no way to fix this, so you must have
Active Directory to be able to use the domain profile in the
firewall configuration.

Is there a registry key maybe with which I could mimic the
"DNS suffix of the last received GPO" ?
Hi

I don't know, but I doubt it...
