We are using SUS to installed XP SP2 on domain computers. It installs with the Firewall running. I want to turn it off without having to login as an Administrator on each machine. The ordinary users don't have the rights to do this. I've searched the domain GPO for a firewall setting but cannot find anything. Is there a way to do this through the GPO? Or is there a better way?

Thanks..... I did read that particular document and everything else I could find at Microsoft before I posted my question but it didn't help me with the problem I'm trying to solve.
