    WMI requests and responses through firewall

    mslavens

      Looking for a strategy or solution on how to securely allow a monitoring service to scan windows hosts through a firewall using the WMI service.  The challenge is that the scanning service will initially connect on 135/tcp and then will negotiate a random high port between 1024 to 65535 to establish another connection on.

       

      Are there any app defenses/proxies available on MFE 8.3.X that we could use?

       

      Found an old thread from 2012 with the same challenge but not answers:

       

      How do I allow WMI traffic to pass through firewall?

       

      Thank you,
