I’m looking at enabling the XP firewall across the whole company via GPO as it’s currently not enabled. Our network is based on 2 different sites with the following IP ranges in use:
I have enabled the following GPO’s
Domain> Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections
Domain> Windows Firewall: Allow remote administration exception
Domain> Windows Firewall: Allow file and printer sharing exception
Domain> Windows Firewall: Allow Remote Desktop exception
Domain> Windows Firewall: Allow UPnP framework exception
Domain> Windows Firewall: Prohibit notifications
Domain> Windows Firewall: Allow local port exceptions
Standard Profile> Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections
Some of the GPO’s require you to specify which network these can be used on, so under the box called “Allow unsolicited messages from:” I have entered the following: 255.255.252.0,255.255.255.0
I have this GPO applied to an OU in AD with x2 test PC’s in, one test PC on each site. When ever I enable the GPO then restart the PC the GPO is picked up & it locks everything down, I cant remote desktop either PC or browse the files on the C$ share. If I check the firewall exceptions tab everything is showing its now being controlled by GPO & its ticked.
This is having the reverse effect on what I’m trying to achieve.
Any suggestions to what I’m doing wrong?

Re: XP Firewall GPO Problem
I figured the issue, I just had the wrong network information in the “Allow unsolicited messages from:” box. Here’s what I needed.
