      Dear All,

       

      Would like to know the ports required for the McAfee Client Deployment .Other than Technical Articles ID:  KB66797

      Requesting my network team to open the below ports.

       

      • TCP and UDP 135-139 : What will happened if it is blocked at Firewall end : Need to give justification to Network security team
      • TCP-445-Bidirectional : for Admin$
      • ICMP -Bidirectional : For Ping

       

      Kindly validate this..your assistance appreciated.

                  Blocking these ports will prevent you from deploying the McAfee Agent directly from ePO server. If you use another means of deploying the McAfee Agent - such as SCCM - then these ports are not critical to the deployment.

           

          • ICMP -Bidirectional : For Ping

                 Mostly reserved for troubleshooting purposes, this allows you to ping to and from server-to-client. This is most useful for deployments to allow you to eliminate routing or firewall issues as a reason the server and client cannot communicate. Once the deployment has been completed, there is no significant reason to leave this open unless you are constantly deploying.

           

          Hope this helps.
