What is with windows firewall!?!
I try in vain to use group policy to turn the damned thing off
I do computer->admin templates->network->net connections->windows firewall->std profile->protect all network connections-> disabled
My rsop.msc on client shows firewall disabled. Services.msc shows ...firewall running!!
Tried turning off service from group policy.
windows settings->security->system services->windows firewall
It then shows up in rsop.msc as another service: mpsSvc disabled firewall off
When I open services.msc.... firewall is running.... bloody great.
Why is this not happening?! anyone know

You need to disable the same policies under the Domain Profile as well as Standard Profile. The run a gpupdate and all should be good

Thanks for response.
Still seems to have firewall service running, even though both these items are applied according to the clients rsop.msc

If you run gpupdate /force that should do the trick. You can also change/update how often your workstations receive new GPO settings. I believe the default is every 90 minutes. You can change this navigating to:
Computer Config > Admin Templates > System > Group Policy - Group Policy refresh interval for computers

The rsop.msc shows its applied, but still service runs... aghh
I tried the forcing of the policy also. Same deal.
But the fact rsop.msc shows its applied without errors, and still the service runs, is enough to make me cry.

The service will always run even if you have disabled all firewall functionality, the service is linked to some other windows services and therefore cant be stopped (from what i know) just the traffic control part will not do anything if you disable it!

The service will still be running even if the firewall is turned off. Have you checked Control Panel > Firewall?

The service is shared with ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on Windows XP. I tend to disable that service on all of my images even though we have a GPO that prevents the firewall from running.
If you open the Windows Firewall control panel on an admin acccount it will be or should be all greyed out.
