EPO Agent 3.6 Group policy port exception for local XP firewall

By Gordinho ·

Just installed Mcafee EPO Orchestrator 4 on one of the domain controllers here and am configuring a group policy for the the XP SRV2 firewalled notebooks on the wire.

With the local XP firewalls off I can deploy the EPO agent from the server to the workstations, however, with the firewall on and a port exception list defined in a group policy (port 82:agent-server coms;port 8081:agent wakeup;port 8082:agent broadcast;port 8444:sensor to server) I get nowhere ! The local firewall log is not detailing any dropped TCP or UDP packets from the source IP and I know that the epo server is functioning ok. I've also added local program exceptions (frameworkservice.exe and UdaterUI.exe from the mcafee common framework directory as these seemed the logical ones to allow) but no joy

I can't find any more useful reference with respect to which ports I should open (as detailed above).

Is there a way of whitelisting both UDP and TCP all ports from the local subnet? (so i can test)

Any pointers appreciated

sussed it...was an issue with firewall policies applied to the pc's at a local level causing a conflict with the ones in the group policy for the laptops...cleaned out all policies (local and AD group) and re applied the AD policies and voila...
