ePO 4.6 and Windows Firewall Issues

I have ePO 4.6 on Windows 2008 Server. I have several Windows 7 Pro 64-bit client PCs. They are loaded with an image using WDS from a Domain Controller. The image has McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 Patch 2.

When I tried to introduced the ePO server into the mix, the clients do not communicate with it. It fails even if I try to force the agent to install manually from the server. Windows Firewall is the culprit. When I disable it completey everything works as intended. I try to go into the Windows Firewall exception list and even specify the exact TCP/UDP ports needed and it still blocks comminucation.

I have searched for similar problems and couldn't find anything that could help mey situation.

If anyone could recommend something helpful I would appreciate greatly.
