Join Brien Posey for an in-depth discussion in this video Create firewalls to allow incoming App-V requests, part of Windows 10: Deploy and Manage Virtual Applications.
- [Instructor] In order to use App-V server there's some Firewall ports that have to be opened, both on the App-V server itself and on SQL server. So let's go ahead and open those ports. What I'm going to do is I'm going to right-click on the Start button, and I'm going to click on run, and I'm going to type WF.MSC. That's going to open up the Windows Firewall console. So, here's the console. And there are a number of inbound rules that we're going to need to create. So, in the case of the App-V server, the reason why we need to create inbound rules is because there are three different server components.
There's the management server, the reporting server, and the publishing server, and each one of those have to have their own dedicated port. Now these port numbers are something that you're going to have to pick out. I've got some port numbers that I'm going to be using, but these aren't necessarily the same port numbers that you'll use in your own organization. So with that said, let's go ahead and create a rule. I'm going to click on new rule, and I'm going to create a port rule and click next. And these are going to be TCP ports.
And then, I have to specify which ports I want to open. And in my case, I'm going to use 8080 comma, 8081 comma, and 8082. So click next. And I'm going to choose to allow the connection and click next. And I'm going to apply this profile to the domain, to the private network, and to the public network. Obviously, the choices that you'll make here depend on your own security considerations.
I'll click next. And now we have to provide a name for the new inbound rule. Because these ports are going to be used by App-V, I'm just going to call this App-V. And I'm going to click finish. And now, our new rule has been enabled. We can see it right here. And we can see that it is indeed enabled. Now we're going to need to create a rule for SQL server. So, we going to do the same basic thing as before. I'm going to click on new rule. And once again we're going to create a port rule.
And I'm going to click next. Once again, this is going to be a TCP port. And, we have to enable this rule for a specific port. In the case of SQL server, the port number that we're going to need is 1433. So, I'm going to type that in and click next. I'm going to choose to allow the connection. I'll click next. And once again we're going to apply this rule to the domain, to the private network and the public network. And again, your choices here will depend on your own security needs.
I'll click next. And we have to provide a name. So I'm going to call this SQL. And I'll click finish. And now my SQL rule has been created. So now we've created all of the rules that we need for our Firewall to allow us to use App-V server.
