  • Firewall settings not getting applied on some systems

    In my Windows 2008 server I have configured Windows Firewall with Advanced Security. It is working on some computers in the same OU but other computers are not working. Client machines are Windows 7 the setting I made is to allow incoming connection to allow certain ports I am able to telnet to some Windows 7 machines using that port from server for some machines I am unable to. After manually disabling and stopping windows firewall service I am able to telnet to those machines using that specific port. I ran gpupdate /force but no go.... in gpresult I can see the settings applied.

    When you forced the update, did you restart the PC? And have you looked in the Application event log on any client where your firewall settings are NOT being applied?
