Some group policy firewall settings not being applied RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am attempting to configure windows firewall settings using group policy.  I have linked it to some OU's and checked the results.  None of the port or program exceptions are being set.  Some of the other options are. The policy is set to force and it has the highest precedence in its OU.  An example of a port setting is as follows:

    135:TCP:,, Point Mapper

    There are about eight such port exceptions.

    An example of a program exceptions is as follows:

    %windir%\pchealth\helpctr\binaries\helpsvc.exe:"*":enabled:Remote Help

    There are two such exceptions.

    Is the format correct?  Does anyone have any ideas?
