Darren, 
 
I did not use that because I wanted this to a setting the user can
change if needed.  Was I correct in assuming I needed to use a
preference?

Jack-

I think you'd be better off using the Windows Firewall with Advanced
Security feature in Vista GP to control the firewall on Vista. Have you
used that area before?

I have created a simple GPO using group policy preferences to stop the
Windows XP firewall service (SharedAccess) and to stop the Vista
firewall service (MpsSvc).  I configured:  Computer Configuration >
Preferences > Control Panel Settings > Services.

I created an entry for service "MpsSvc" with the Action to stop the
service, Startup as No Change, and Account Logon as No Change.

I created a second entry for service "SharedAcess" with the same
settings. 

The GPO works fine for XP machines, but I see no change for Vista.  The
RSOP shows the GPO was applied as does the Group Policy event log.  I
have tried to run this with an Account Logon of Local System, but that
made no difference.  I  suspect it is a Vista UAC issue, so does anyone
see anything I missed?
