Re: Endpoint Firewall Rules Apps or Remote Port

Hi @Former Member ,

You will have to enable adaptive mode on some machines, with which ENS will be able to create its own allow or block rule.

Note :

Enabling adaptive mode on a lot of machines will create tons of rule and you will find it hard to administrate all the rules. Hence, I would recommend you to enable adaptive mode on a very less amount of machines.

  • These rule will in unreadable format.
  • To convert those rule to readable format, you will have to first  "collect and sent props" or give a "wake-up agent" to those machines.
  • Now, log into EPO - > server task.
  • Run the "property translator task".
  • Now, all the created rules will be displayed in "Firewall client rules" under "reporting" section in EPO.
  • From here you can add the necessary rule to the "firewall rules" policy.

Note :

After adding the adaptive mode generated rules to " firewall rules " policy, you can modify the rules and move it to top of the stack in firewall rules policy to take effect.

For more information you can follow the below articles:

Hope that helps!

Hi @Former Member 

We don't have any recommendations as Microsoft Teams is not our product. For configuration recommendations, you will need to check with Microsoft.
