ERROR_DESTINATION_NOT_REACHABLE RRS feed

    I have installed Web Deploy 3.6 on a Windows server using "Web Platform Installer".

    I have opened up the firewall to allow incoming connections on TCP 8172

    When I try to publish using Visual Studio I get a "ERROR_DESTINATION_NOT_REACHABLE" message.

    I have been reading the MS documentation here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/publish/troubleshooting-web-deploy/web-deploy-error-codes#errordestinationnotreachable   and it says "Verify that Remote Agent Service or Web Management Service are started on the remote computer, depending on which one you are connecting to."

    Does that mean only 1 of these 2 services is required and not both of them?

    How am I supposed to know which one I am trying to connect to?

    Only 1 of the 2 services got installed with Web Deploy : web deployment agent service (msdepsvc)

    If the service "web management service (wmsvc)" is required where am I supposed to get it from if it doesnt get installed with WebDeploy?
