Get this tool:
http://www.gpoguy.com/FreeTools/FreeToolsLibrary/tabid/67/agentType/View/PropertyID/83/Default.aspx
Add this action:
cmd.exe /K \\server\share$\Lansweeper\RGPrefresh.exe /m:{computer}


Before I could use psexec and gpupdate command, but this tools supports remote policy refresh wich is much better 🙂

Regards,
Paulo

We have policy enforced not to use firewall in our domain, and I'm a Linux user at home so I can't test these small things...

By creating a policy, in the computer context it's possible to run a startup script to stop the firewall service or to run the command I've specified:
netsh firewall set opmode DISABLE

No, when the firewall is on you can't do anything, it's like there is no computer on the other side

Can you access the remote computer registry in any way (HKLM)? Or using mmc can you remotely access services and stop the firewall service?

You can't psexec or any other tool because the workstation is firewalled

Well but you can disable firewall remotely before, it's not that hard I believe. Our security is not client based so we don't use windows firewall - I can't test it quickly.

Please try to create an action with:
psexec \\<computer> netsh firewall set opmode DISABLE

This is a cool action, but most people's problem is that they want to refresh to policy that turns off the firewall (which won't in this case because the workstation is firewalled)
