RE: EPO 4.5 Agent Handler Use

Finally got it to work.

To Recap. I have a main EPO server, and a Agent Handler that has a outward facing IP address which is published in the config settings.. The AH has a connection back to the SQL Cluster.

In EPO 4.5 there is a new setting in Server Setting Ports that needs to be addressed. There is a new Agent-To-Server Communication Secure Port that needs to be either disabled OR allowed thru the firewall. This port(443) is used for TLS Encrypted communications. Once I disabled it, and copied the new Framepkg.exe to my laptop everything worked like it should.

KB66929 explains how to change it. I'm going to request that it be opened up in our firewalls and will migrate to that port instead of my trusty 8081. I'm told that it is very important for Host DLP.

I currently have a handfull of Laptops for testing, but so far everything looks good. Pushing software via Verizon Wireless Laptop card was painfull, but minor updates are okay.

Hope this helps someone out there......It does work!!!!!

Thanks Kellerjd for your detailed explanation. Really appreciate it.

The agent handler I configured in DMZ is working like a charm now.

Re: RE: EPO 4.5 Agent Handler Use

if I had an alternate port specified and working on my EPO box for my SQL connection, I need to use that port NOT 1433 for agent handler data connections correct?

RickIA,

That would be correct.

Re: RE: EPO 4.5 Agent Handler Use

Resuming my experience We have to open following ports from Agent Handler (standalone computer) to our Epo 4.5+SQL Express 2005 Server.

8443   Epo port

1433 Ms SQL Server

1434 Ms SQL Resolver

3882 Ms SQL DTS

Re: RE: EPO 4.5 Agent Handler Use

Hi arruza,

maybe a stupid question, but what is the port 3382  ("3882 Ms SQL DTS") used for ?

That is, in which case is it needed to allow connections from Agent Handler to SQL DTS ?

Thanks in advance,

Michael

It is not required. Page 14 of the Agent Handler White paper indicates the required ports. I've attached a copy of the agent handler white paper.

I dont know what is used for 3382 port but we monitored all ports used from agent handler to epo server. If we block this port on the firewall the Agent Handler reports errors in comunications.
