7 Professional 64bit
Win 7 Firewall Profile Issue 64bit Professional (standalone laptop)

Hi All

I have some laptops here, which are setup as standalone machines running windows 7 Professional 64bit.

Now they have two nics for wireshark testing. I have setting them up running a Local GPO customised set of Group policy.

The issue I am running across is that I can disable one NIC under the domain profile in (Windows firewall with Advanced Security on Local Computer under control panel) if I set Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections to not configured. This is under Windows firewall\Domain

However I cannot do the same for Public or private profile.

Has anyone run across this issue before. Basically I just need to be able to disable the firewall on one nic. And so far I have been unable to do so.

Any help would be appreciated.

edit: can I get around this issue by using a third party firewall and disabling windows firewall?
