Installing SP2 on a remote XP Pro box


G'day All,

Does anyone know of a method of installing SP2 on a remote XP Pro box via remote desktop connection which doesn't allow the firewall to block reconnection immediately after rebooting?

The Windows Firewall applet doesn't appear to allow access for configuration until after the reboot, and by then the firewall is blocking remote desktop connections by default.

Thanks for any experiences anyone can share.

Best Regards,

LBJ

The only problem I see with it is you might get locked out with the firewall automatically being enabled on reboot.

Uh...that IS the problem. That was the whole point of his post, was how to get around that problem. That being said, that's an interesting question. MS support might be able to shed some light on that one, but now it's bothering me so I'll go test it to see if there's a way to do to that...probably with some type of corporate install...

G'day All,

I actually found the solution with two registry entries which can be created prior to the update. That will disable the firewall as soon as the reboot occurs.

MS have an online document titled "Deploying Windows Firewall Settings for Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2".

Best Regards,

LBJ
