Windows Firewall Group Policy


G

Guest

I am attempting to set Group Policy for our laptop users. I want the firewall
on when they are off the network and I can get it so it will allow ICMP and
RDP. I have 2 other ports that I need to open, 6129 and 2258. So I go under
Admin Templates, Network Connections, Windows Firewall, Standard Profile.
Then I go to Define Port Exceptions and enter:
2258:TCP:"*":enabled: SonicWall AD Connector (for our internet content
filter to connect to AD)
6129:TCP:"*":enabled:DameWare MRC (for our remote control software)
I've verified the ports but they still get blocked by the windows firewall.

I'm pulling my hair out and I don't have that much left. Does anyone know
what I'm missing?

Try posting in microsoft.public.windows.group_policy for the most expert hep
with GPO stuff.
