I have Remote Assistance enabled via GP at the domain level.

New machine are coming with Service pack 2 installed which means windows
firewall. We would like to keep this feature enabled but still need to use
Remote assistance.

I know which changes I need to make in order to enable Remote Assistance
with SP2 but I do not have the option in my group Policy.

I need to make an entry here

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Network
Connections\Windows Firewall

This setting is available on the local GP for the XP machines but is not
available in the Domain GP. Domain is not running in W2K3 mode ( W2K ).

Hi

If you have used a Windows XP SP2 computer to administer the Group
Policy settings in the domain, the adm files should automatically
have been updated.

Group Policy Template Behavior in Windows Server 2003
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316977

I would think most things in the link above applies to Win2k as well.

Recommendations for managing Group Policy administrative
template (.adm) files
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816662

A discussion about it here:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/microsoft.public.wi...

See here on how Jeff updated the Default Domain Policy templates when
they would not do it automatically:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/microsoft.public.wi...


You can also download the latest .adm files from here:

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=31057

If you install the WinXP SP2 .adm files on the domain controller, but
you don't use WinXP SP2 to edit the GPO settings, you may you get the
message below, install the hotfix that is available in the KB article
in the link below to solve this.

"The following entry in the [strings] section is too long and has
been truncated" error message when you try to modify or to view GPOs
in Windows Server 2003, Windows XP Professional, or Windows 2000

Also, or a complete list of Group Policy options for the WinXP SP2, see

Windows XP with Service Pack 2":
