SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • In a domain environment, you use a Group Policy object (GPO) on a server to deploy advanced security settings for Windows Firewall to some client computers.
  • You log on a client computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
  • To check the Windows Firewall settings for your user profile on the client computer, you type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
    netsh advfirewall show all profiles
In this scenario, the advanced security settings for Windows Firewall that you have deployed are not displayed. Only the local security settings for Windows Firewall are displayed.

However, in Windows Firewall with Advanced Security, the advanced security settings for Windows Firewall are displayed as expected.

Note To open Windows Firewall with Advanced Security, at a command prompt type the following command, and then press ENTER:
wf.msc

    Collapse this tableExpand this table
    VersionProductMilestoneService branch
    6.0.6000.20xxxWindows VistaRTMLDR
    6.0.6001.22xxxWindows Vista SP1 and Windows Server 2008 SP1SP1LDR
