  • Backing out Windows firewall controlled GPO setting

    I am running Windows Server 2000 and a number of Windows XP Professional workstations. On my workstation I am running the GPMC.

    I have previously made a policy which either enables or disables the firewall that come with Windows XP SP2. I found that it basically locks out the user and doesn't allow them to customize some of their own settings.

    I have changed the policy back to "Not Configured", so that they users can then do their own customizations. However the users find that they are still unable to configure their own firewall settings.

    What is the easiest/best way to correct this behaviour?

    Thanks

    Pretty sure they need to be an administrator of the machine before they can make any firewall changes

      Yeah - they would have to be an administrator or a power user with the rights to do so.

      Found the solution.

      All part of the way one structures the GPO policies.
