Windows firewall port (either TCP or UDP or both) for the "net use command.

By Miyamoto Musashi ·
I have a large enterprise network on a 2003 AD structure. I have GP enabling the Windows firewall and opening specific ports. The issue: I am not able to use the "net use" command to access the IPC$ share. When I disable the firewall, the command works. Oh, file and printer sharing is enabled on the firewall. The following is the command that I use:



Again, this works if the firewall is disabled, but with the firewall enabled, both commands fail. Please help!

Access other shares?

I think ports 135 to 139, but I would have thought allowing Windows File and Print Sharing would have opened that up.

Disabled the firewall, open a command prompt on the PC. Kick off the commands you use from the remote PC. On the local PC run "netstat -a -n" and look for the connections between your your two IP addresses.
