Editor's Note: Shaun Pond suggests that while this is a nice option for one-off changes, you should also consider using Group Policies.

ENVIRONMENT: Windows XP Sp2, ZENworks 7, No Active Directory

Here is how you can add exceptions for GroupWise and Remote Control using NETSH commands.

EXAMPLE:

##Add Firewall settings for ZenRemote Control and GroupWise##
