Does anyone have a good link for setting up a GPO to allow Epolicy to function properly with Windows XP?
I am running Epolicy 4.0 with VirusScan 8.5i on WinXP machines and the user manual mentions that you are supposed to set up file and print sharing as an exception as well as the framework service, however, it only mentioned how to do this from a single workstation and not from a Windows GPO which is different. And, even the info they provided for setting up a single workstation seems as though it is missing parts for this procedure.
I would think the user manual should have more information when it comes to setting up a GPO for this as most people will probably be using a GPO to control the Windows XP machines firewall exceptions. Also just wondering if I am the only person who thinks a section on setting up the GPO would be helpful in the user manual, or overkill. thanks
This is exactly what I was thinking, because, as is, many companies leave the XP firewall on and that of course causes an issue for the machines getting deployed via Epolicy. I still have not been able to locate a decent procedure for this. Someone must have it documented somewhere?
I was wondering about this also, if I should create a GPO to allow port or program exception. In the end I went with port exception.
Below are the ports agents bind to, I also allow File and Print Sharing and Echo request(ping) under ICMP execptions. The only issue is its probably best to instead of specifying network (10.20.30...) for 8081:TCP, you should use * to allow from anywhere. If you have superAgents they will send wakeup calls on this port I believe.
