SMS Query

By rkelly ·
Hi,

I currently have the following situation. I've got an SMS 2 installation and wish to extend it's site boundaries. Unfortunately some of the boundary is behind an internal firewall that is used to keep 2 networks as seperate entities. I'm trying to use Network Discovery to find the clients behind the firewall and am having no luck at all.

Unfortuantely I cannot just switch off this firewall, so I could really do with a list of packet filters or the location of some information that could help me, the MS web site was no use.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is supposed to make SMS work through the firewall.

Was there some reason it didn't help? Error message?

Hi,

this article allows you to configure SMS Sites to communicate through a router. I'd already tried it to no avail - eventually I just allowed all traffic to go through the firewall from the SMS Server but it still didn't work.

Thanks anyway.

Does this article help?
I think you'll have to configure ports.

You would need to open ports on the firewall to allow RPC traffic through. I think the port number is 138. There are a couple of other ports that might need to be opened, not sure which without looking as I no longer have access to the setup I used.Good Luck!!!!
