Today I had to install a LOB application that uses SQL Server 2005. Despite setting all possible exceptions in the firewall, I could not get client connectivity setup.
I then decided that I would need to disable the firewall temporarily. However, this is controlled by the SBS Group Policy. I looked at all the GPOs but it was not immediatly obvious where I would find this object.....
Eventually I found the right one: The 'Windows SBS Client Policy' defines the firewall setting. By changing this entry to 'not configured', I can still enable or disable it, but I have control over the setting from the client.
