BES Agent Deployment tool

(imported topic written by quinla0191)

What ports are required to be open if using the BES agent depolyment tool to a remote site behind a firewall?

Thanks

it uses RPC, so you’ll need at least the SMB ports (137-139).

Thanks. What about 445?

Depends on the age of the clients you’re pushing to, might need that too. I’m not positive that the client pusher will use 445, but I suspect it just leverages the OS for the remote action, which would mean that it attempts 137 and 445 at the same time and uses whichever works.
