I have deployed the HIPS (Firewall) 8.0 Patch 2 on one of desktops, after installing it on machine, I am not able to do RDP, or other network activity on that machine.
Any help on it ?
This may be a stupid question, but are your firewall rules set up to allow RDP and the other network activity on that machine?
In the HIPS console, you will see what rules exist - there will be default rules for communication with an EPO server if you deployed from EPO, and you should see a "block all traffic" rule. Te HIPS firewall operates in a "deny by default" mode, so if you do not have a rule that explicitly allows RDP (either the application or the TCP/UDP ports associated with the protocol), it will be blocked by the implicit "block all traffic" rule.
You can look at the log tab in the HIPS console to see what rule is causing the RDP traffic to be blocked.
