Sophos Firewall on a windows 7

How to install Sophos Firewall on a windows 7 client using SBE.
The remote registry service needs to be started on the client, by default ths windows 7 service is stopped.

Using services.msc start Remote Registry - Service. This assumes that the windows firewall is off, not to sure which ports need to be open.

Then using the Sophos SBE console push the firewll to the required windows 7 client.

Just need to see if I can deploy the Sophos Antivirus the same way, until now we have installed locally on the client and updated from Sophos SBE.
