Getting around firewall in SP2, UNC

By Walkerxp92 ·
Wanting to find out what port UNC goes through when trying to access computers on our domain, example start:RUN- \\computer_name\c$ ...

I am sure you understand, I have tried to allow ports 445 and 139 in the exceptions list and go though but it doesn't work.

We are wanting to push sp2 out but needing to get around this first.

Disabling Firewall we do not want as an option, we already know how to do that in active directory.

Port Requirements for Windows products.

Generally, you will need port 135 open for RPC. And a random port above 1024 will be chosen for RPC endpoint mapper. You may also have to open 137 and 138, depending on your setup. You should also have port 88 open for Kerberos.

Try opening those and seeing if the issue is resolved.

Nice to know but all of the ports you mentioned are in the exception list all except 135 TCP. But didn't work.

Windows firewall (sp2 version) has the abilty to allow all communication from an entire subnet or you could specify a scope of address'. There is also an exceptions tab that allows File and Print sharing, Remote Assistance, Remote Desktop, UPnp Framework and Windows Messenger.
I think enabling some of the exceptions combined with scope configuration you should be able to resolve this.

Already know this, and exceptions tab doesn't allow for scope.

FYI, The exceptions tab won't allow a scope of IP addresses. It has to be a list. I tried.
