How Do I Turn Off Windows Defender Firewall after I deploy SEP 11.05
So I deployed SEP 11.05 in my network and everything seemed to go fine. I activated the complete SEP package on all my Windows 7 clients (Anti Virus and Firewall). After having this running for a month, I noticed that I would intermittently have problems with the client computers communicating with my network scanner. When I investigated I found that both the SEP Firewall (Network Threat Protection) and Windows Firewall were running at the same time when I had the problems. I thought that SEP took control of the computers and forced Windows Defender Firewall to turn off. However, what I am finding is that randomly the client computers boot with both the Windows Firewall and Network Threat Protection running.
Does anyone know how I get this sorted out so that Windows Firewall stays off on the clients?
My setup is SBS2008r2 server, Windows 7 clients (13 computers in all), and one XP client that also runs the SEPM.
