    This might not belong in this group, so I apologize in advance.

    SBS2003R2 Std.

    I upgrded to Trend 3.5 and also have Windows Firewall running I guess
    through SBS group policy. Is this OK or will they conflict with each other?

    Shouldn't you only have one firewall running? Which one is better, Trend's
    or Windows? If I need to disable one, which one and how?

  2. Don't use the Trend firewall, turn it off in the Security Console.

    It's not SBS aware at all, and will give you fits, wheras the XP firewall is
    largely configured by group policy settings on you SBS server.

  3. Hi Dan,

    Thanks for posting in our newsgroup and also for Les's suggestion.

    From your description, I know that you installed Trend Micro Anti-Spyware
    3.5 on your Windows XP clients. If I am off-base, please don't hesitate to
    let me know.

    Based on my research, Trend Micro Anti-Spyware 3.5 is a privacy protection
    product. It can clean areas of your computer that might be used to track or
    reveal your computer and Internet activity, including your web browsing
    history, Internet cache files, unwanted Internet cookies, and more. In
    addition, Trend Micro Anti-Spyware can scan your PC memory and hard drive
    to alert you to the presence of various types of potential software privacy
    threats like Adware, Trackware, and Trojans.

    I searched the Microsoft website and Google, where is no report on the
    conflict between Windows Firewall and Trend Micro Anti-Spyware 3.5 so far.
    For the concern of system resource, I suggest you to turn off Windows
    Firewall. The Trend Micro Anti-Spyware 3.5 is powerful enough to protect
    the safety of your system.

    To turn off the Windows Firewall, please take the following steps:
    1. Start -> Administrative Tools -> Group Policy Management
    2. Expand Domains -> Your Domain
    3. Right click the Small Business Server Windows Firewall and click Edit
    4. Computer configuration>Administrative templates>Network>Network
    connections> Windows Firewall> Domain Profile;
    5. In "Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections" should be set to
    'Disable'
    6. Run Gpupdate /force on your Windows XP client.

    In addition, Windows Firewall is not enabled on the SBS Server by default.

    Hope above information help.

    If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to let me know.


    Best regards,

    Robert Li(MSFT)
