    I don't know why Windows Firewall is on (something the person I replaced put in place). It's gonna be turned off now cause it's caused too many problems aside from this (had a few problems with it and ghost).
    We use GPO to turn Windows firewall off

    @ elsiegee40

    IMHO a layered approach to security is essential and relying on only a perimeter firewall is no longer adequate any member of staff could bring in a virus/worm on a pendrive or an infected laptop and your perimeter security is rendered useless. It takes no time at all to use GP to open all of the necessary ports.

    Just my opinion.

    @ adamf, i've known this happen a number of times in fact i had one this morning, no amount of policy refreshes or reboots would sort it but rejoining the domain did.

    remotly apply group policy to computer

    You can use Psexec a sysinternal tool to update group policy to remote machine ,you can apply to all computers in a domain controller in a single command you can download Psexec the syntax is follows

    Psexec \\* gpupdate /force

    \\* means all computers you can change it as computer name for single machine

    after you can check the event viewer whether policy is updated or not

    You can found more information from here PsExec
